The human body is imperfect, and, despitethe fact that there are more and more modern technologies and new inventions, mankind suffers from terrible diseases. The death rate from cardiovascular diseases has increased several times over the past centuries. These diseases affect both women and men. Ignoring simple signals of the body, we give the disease the ability to prevail.
Consider the symptoms of heart angina in women, ways of providing first aid and find out what folk remedies can help the body cope with this disease.
Lack of blood supply to the heart muscle,causing pain in the heart, called stenocardia. Often this disease is called a thoracic toad, because the pain extends beyond the breastbone. This is not an isolated disease, but a combination of symptoms that are manifestations of coronary heart disease.
An acute shortage of blood supply to the heart muscle is called ischemia. As a result, there is a deficiency of oxygen, which leads to the appearance of cardiac pain called angina.
Since ischemia refers to chronicdiseases, angina pectoris as a symptom may persist for many years. So, angina in women has almost identical symptoms with the same disease in men, but there are some features.
In a state of rest, attacks almost disappear, in the case of emotional or physical exertion, they can become aggravated and occur even several times a day.
It is necessary to remember that if there was an attack of angina, this indicates that the heart muscle experiences oxygen starvation. It is necessary to consult a doctor.
Angina in men and women is of several types.
1. Stable angina, or angina of tension, according to the degree of severity is divided into classes:
2. Unstable angina. It is characterized by the following:
3. Variable angina. For this species is characteristic manifestation in the morning hours or at night in a state of rest. The attack lasts about 2-5 minutes, in this case "Nitroglycerin" is effective.
If signs of unstable angina appear, immediately call an ambulance, because urgent hospitalization is required.
When the attack of stable angina suffices, one tablet of "Nitroglycerin", and with unstable this drug is ineffective, especially since it lasts a little longer.
What are the symptoms of angina in women and the reasons for their appearance? We need to get acquainted with this in more detail.
Consider the reasons that can cause an attack, they affect the symptoms of angina in women.
It can be concluded that there are many reasons for the development of the disease.
The disease is one for all, but due to the difference in sex there are some features of the course and development of a disease such as angina.
The first symptom of angina is pain.Due to the peculiarities of the body, the symptoms of angina pectoris in women are expressed somewhat differently than in men. This may depend on the pain threshold, but in this case it is a question of the dislocation of pain. So, complaints of chest pain in women are not always a confirmation of the diagnosis of "angina", although they complain more often than men. It is also proved that most women do not experience pain in the arm or shortness of breath with angina pectoris. And painful sensations are more often piercing and pulsing, rather than squeezing, as is typical for angina attacks in a strong half of humanity.
For the female body, there may be pain in the abdomen, nausea.
Most likely, this is due to the different origin of the attack of angina pectoris. In women, the most common cause is spasm coronary, and in men - the narrowing of the lumen of the coronary vessels, plaques or thrombus.
A great value for a woman is of age iftalk about a disease like angina. Before the onset of menopause, angina pectoris in women 40 years of age has a significantly lower development risk than men of the same age. Since estrogens reliably protect the female body from the development of various diseases, including diseases of the cardiovascular system. After the onset of menopause, the risk in women becomes the same as for men.
Women and men can distinguish the main symptoms of angina attacks:

The attack of angina may begin completelyunexpectedly and just the same. Its duration is from 1 to 5 minutes or a little more. If it continues for half an hour, there is a chance of developing a myocardial infarction.
Studies have shown that if it occurs, 50% of women die, in men this figure is slightly less.
After an attack of angina, 38%of women die within 12 months, while in the male population this figure is 25%. 46% of women remain disabled, while men - only 22%. Based on this sad statistics, we can conclude how dangerous is angina in women. First aid should be given promptly, without letting the fit develop into a myocardial infarction.
Much less common is a disease likeangina in women 40 years old. The photo clearly shows the localization of pain, characterizing the attack with this disease. There is some order of action if there are symptoms of angina pectoris:

While waiting for an ambulance, it is necessary to do the following:
