Acute MI in women?

Dr. Viveka Kumar, Senior Director - Cath Lab, Max Super Speciality Hospital, Saket, will discuss about acute MI in women, in this video. Its a myth that MI doesn’t happen in women and that’s the reason they come very late for treatment. The hormones in females protect them from myocardial infarction and coronary artery diseases but after menopause they are at equal high risk as men. Also, lifestyle risk factors are also responsible for MI such as smoking, lack of sleep, stress, etc.
