New Research on heart disease

New research out of the University of Sydney shows there are differences between the male and female heart. They found that women have greater blood flow to their heart muscle and greater space between their heart muscle cells. The findings may explain differences in how heart disease presents in men and women.

Among Australian women:
– Over half a million Australian women have cardiovascular disease
– It accounts for almost one-third of deaths among women
– From 2006 to 2016, hospitalisation rates rose 11 per cent for women aged 25-34
– They rose 4.7 per cent for women aged 35-44.
