Introduction: Acute myocardial infarction (MI) indicates irreversible myocardial injury resulting in necrosis of a significant portion of myocardium. MI is associated with high mortality. The difference between the signs of MI in each gender is unclear. The aim of this study was to describe gender-associated differences in symptom presentation after acute MI.
Methods: This analytic-descriptive research was carried out on 102 patients (44 women and 58 men) with MI experience who referring in Shahid Mohamadi hospital and Abolfazl hospital, Hormozgan, Iran. Patients participating in the study were randomly selected. Individual information; the pain characteristics records, electrocardiogram and laboratory results, pain numerical rating scale, were collected.
Results: The results showed that chest pain was the most common initial symptom in both men and women (92%) This is while sweating in men (74%) and dyspnea in women (61.4) as the second reported sign. No gender-related differences in other symptoms such as vomiting, nausea, dizziness, palpitations, pallor, epigastric pain, chills and weakness were observed.
Conclusion: In this study in patients with MI, women had a worse-risk profile in comparison to men. No significant gender-related differences in symptoms were observed.
