Caring for STEMI: Age & Gender Differences | News Brief

Results of a national study of more than 31,000 patients suggest that patients presenting with STEMI aged 45 and younger appear to have overall similar quality of care and in-hospital outcomes as their older counterparts. However, significantly lower quality of care and worse outcomes were observed in women when compared with men and with those aged 35 or younger when compared with those aged 36 to 45.
