8,200 women in UK died of heart attacks for lack of same care as men, study estimates

(CNN)More than 8,200 women in England and Wales could have survived heart attacks over the course of a decade, had they received the same quality care as men, research says.

The research, part funded by the British Heart Foundation and published in the journal Heart, revealed that women were less likely to receive guideline care for heart attacks compared with men.
Scientists at the University of Leeds found that women in the UK had more than double the median rate of death than men in the 30 days after heart attacks. Their findings revealed that 5.2% of women died in the same period after a heart attack, compared with only 2.3% of men, representing a 2.26-fold increase in relative risk of death.
