Introduction: Cardiovascular disease are the main causes of mortality among men and women so that the difference of acute myocardial infarction (MI) symptoms between men and women can affect on diagnosis and time of decision making for treatment and consequently on disease outcomes. Therefore, knowing different symptoms affects the prognostic of the disease according to the gender. This study conducted aimed to review the difference in clinical symptoms of myocardial infarction between men and… 

Tables from this paper

The comparison of clinical signs presentation in middle age men and women with myocardial infarction
TLDR
Women had a worse-risk profile in comparison to men after acute myocardial infarction, and no significant gender-related differences in symptoms were observed.
COMPARISON OF THE CLINICAL SYMPTOMS OF MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION IN THE MIDDLE-AGED AND ELDERLY
TLDR
The elderly patients have more chance of manifesting nonspecific symptoms of myocardial infarction, and the healthcare providers, especially nurses, should be more careful in this regard during the initial assessment.
Current Status of the Clinical Epidemiology of Myocardial Infarction in Men and Women: A National Cross-Sectional Study in Iran
TLDR
The MI incidence pattern, mortality from MI, and risk factors prevalence are significantly different between men and women in Iran.
Whither QSAR?
TLDR
Women had a worse-risk profile in comparison to men after acute myocardial infarction, and no significant gender-related differences in symptoms were observed.
Survey of the Relationship between Physiological Parameters and Chest Pain in Patients with Unstable Angina
TLDR
It seems that the arterial blood oxygen saturation can be used as a way to measure patients' pain, since no relationship between other physiological parameters was found and further studies with larger sample size are needed to be conducted.

Of the therapeutic regimens, gabapentin is a second-line agent alternative to baclofen in treating hiccups and is especially helpful in patients undergoing stroke rehabilitation or palliative care when chlorpromazine is prohibited due to its adverse effects.

Presentations of Acute Myocardial Infarction in Men and Women
TLDR
Among patients who presented to EDs with chest pain or other symptoms suggestive of acute cardiac ischemia, AMI was more likely in men than in women, and among women with ST-segment elevation or signs of CHF, however,AMI likelihood was similar to that in men with these characteristics.
Symptoms across the continuum of acute coronary syndromes: differences between women and men.
TLDR
Women with acute coronary syndromes reported a higher intensity of 5 symptoms (but not chest pain) than men reported, and whether differences between the sexes in less typical symptoms are clinically significant remains unclear.
Differences between men and women in terms of clinical features of ST-segment elevation acute myocardial infarction.
TLDR
Clinical profiles and presentations differ between women and men with AMI, and it is found that women have less typical symptoms of AMI than men.
Gender differences in symptoms associated with acute myocardial infarction: a review of the research.
Symptom presentation of acute myocardial infarction: influence of sex, age, and risk factors.
TLDR
The results suggest that sex, age, smoking, hypertension, diabetes, and hypercholesterolemia may affect the symptoms of acute myocardial infarction.
Symptoms of men and women presenting with acute coronary syndromes.
Age and sex differences in presentation of symptoms among patients with acute coronary disease: the REACT Trial. Rapid Early Action for Coronary Treatment.
TLDR
There are differences between symptoms at presentation of men and women, and those in various age groups, hospitalized with acute coronary disease, and Clinicians should be aware of these differences when diagnosing and managing patients suspected to have coronary heart disease.
Symptoms in acute coronary syndromes: does sex make a difference?
Symptom presentation of women with acute coronary syndromes: myth vs reality.
TLDR
Women are significantly less likely to report chest pain or discomfort compared with men, and these differences are not likely large enough to warrant sex-specific public health messages regarding the symptoms of ACS at the present time.
Women and men with unstable angina and/or non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction
TLDR
Women with UA/NSTEMI, being significantly older and with more comorbidity, were at significantly increased risk of in-hospital heart failure but not at increased riskOf in- hospital, 30-day and six-month adverse outcomes when compared with men.
