At University Hospital of Lille, the Women’s Cardiovascular Healthcare Foundation (Agir pour le Cœur des Femmes) is seeing patients every day who have delayed treatment because they were afraid to see a doctor in the past few weeks. No one should hesitate to see a doctor or call 911 as soon as symptoms appear. In the greater Paris region, the number of cardiac arrests has doubled during lockdown. It’s important to see a doctor or call 911 as soon as you feel heart attack symptoms. Note that these symptoms are often less acute for women and include tiring easily, shortness of breath, chest pain and nausea. It’s especially important to get treatment right away if you have risk factors like smoking, stress, physical inactivity, excess weight, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and diabetes. https://www.francetvinfo.fr/sante/maladie/coronavirus/coronavirus-le-nombre-darrets-cardiaque-a-double-durant-le-confinement_3992419.html
