Heart Attack Symptoms in Women

Heart Attack Symptoms in Women

We understand the importance of heart health for women. As with men, women’s most common heart attack symptom is chest pain or discomfort. But women are somewhat more likely than men to experience some of the other common symptoms, particularly shortness of breath, nausea/vomiting and back or jaw pain. If you have any of these signs, don’t wait to call for help. Call 9-1-1 and get to the closest hospital immediately.

Doctors Hospital's Emergency Department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year providing additional physician coverage during the evenings, weekends, and holiday hours.  Located in the center of Augusta and closest to its fastest growing sectors, our Emergency Department averages the areas shortest wait times and fastest treatment times.  Staffed with skilled physicians, nurses and paramedics, we are committed to providing you with efficient, high quality care and short ER wait times.
