Abstract

© MedicineToday 2016.Despite being more likely to present with NSTEMI than STEMI, women have worse outcomes after an ACS than men, due in part to older age at ACS occurrence and having more comorbidities. Women generally have longer delays from symptom onset to treatment and are more likely not to report chest pain and less likely to have diagnostic ECG changes and elevated troponin levels.
