Hundreds of women at risk of ‘stress’ heart attacks, research suggests –

Hundreds of women are at risk for stress heart attacks. This is according to the latest research. There are more than 1000 people a year that suffer from a stress related heart attack and a large portion of them are women. This is happening in patients that do not have heart disease. Emotional stress is a big factor.

Key Takeaways:

  • More than 1,000 people a year, many young women, are falling victim to stress-related heart attacks, new research suggests.
  • While the average age of victims was found to be 52, around 30 per cent of cases involved women who were nearing the end of a pregnancy or had recently given birth.
  • After tracking cases over a period of 15 years, researchers found 0.54 per cent were due to SCAD.

“The British study shows that the condition – which is unusual because it mainly occurs in those without obvious risks of heart disease – is causing hundreds of hospitalisations each year, with at least 100 deaths.”
