March 24, 2016 In the News
Leslie Poor MD, FACC, FAHA of Bryn Mawr Hospital, part of Main Line Health’s Lankenau Heart Institute, said, “"Not all patients experience classic symptoms of a heart attack. In particular, women may not experience the classic chest pain of a heart attack.” These less common symptoms may include nausea, jaw or back discomfort, shortness of breath, extreme fatigue or sweating, usually lasting longer than a few minutes.” See more from Philadelphia magazine.
