This resource was both interesting and informative. The highlighted gender differences in cardiac presentations was excellent. I work in a female correctional centre and we often have women that have cardiac histories and many of the younger ones have multi risk factors, e.g, drug use, obesity, smoking, poor diet. Chest pain is not the only thing to consider. Gender and risk factors are extremely important.
