Women, Stress, and Heart Disease synopsis

The issue of women's health has long been ignored. This applies to many medical fields, but it has become more evident in the field of cardiology.

For a long time, cardiology was a medical specialty that seemed to have been created for men, by men - especially in research, but also in intensive clinical care units where male patients were more pronounced and dominant. Moreover, the clinical cardiologists - their physicians - were mostly male.

It's easy to understand that most women think they will die of cancer rather than heart disease, but this is not true. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among women as it is for men.

Females often encounter patients in the cardiology department, but they are older and appear to receive less vision and attention than male patients. Research on risk factors for heart disease also focuses almost entirely on men.

This is true for psychosocial and behavioral aspects of cardiovascular risk. In order to bridge this gap, this volume contains contributions from prominent international and national researchers from various fields such as sociology, psychology, epidemiology, cardiology, clinical medicine and physiology.

These professionals gathered together at a multidisciplinary seminar on women, stress, and cardiology, held at the Swedish Society of Medicine. Building on the symposium, this book provides a solid foundation for empirical and empirical scientific conclusions on this important topic..
