Arrhythmia Monitoring and Women’s Health

Did you know the number one killer of women in the United States is heart disease? Many people believe that heart disease only affects men, but that is simply false. Anyone can get heart disease, and women are especially at risk, which is why it is vital to monitor your heart health daily.

The risk of heart disease is even higher for women who are overweight and over the age of 70. The older a woman gets, the higher her risk of heart disease, but that is not to say that younger women are without risk. Prevention is key, and practicing healthy eating and lifestyle habits from an early age can reduce the risk of heart disease in the long-run. The risk is just simply too high, and believe it or not, two-thirds of women who have heart complications rarely make a full recovery.

Symptoms of heart disease may not be readily apparent, and it’s important to remember that just because you may experience one of these symptoms does not automatically mean you have, or are at risk of heart disease. The number one symptom is feeling tired even after a full night’s sleep. It’s important to regularly monitor your heart and be aware of any abnormal feelings in your chest, like heart palpitations or possible arrhythmias. Arrhythmia monitoring may be necessary if you regularly experience abnormal symptoms and need a diagnosis from your doctor. A few symptoms of heart disease include but may not be limited to:

  • Trouble breathing and sleeping

  • Sick to the stomach, frequent nausea

  • Feelings of nervousness

  • Burning in the chest or tightness

  • Pain above the belly button

  • New or worsening headaches

  • Aches in the chest

  • Breathlessness

  • Dizziness, blackouts
