MI Admissions on Upswing in Younger Women

Bucking the trend in other groups, younger women in that province experienced an increase in the hospitalization rate of 1.7% per year from 2000 through 2009 (P=0.04), according to Karin Humphries, MBA, DSc, of the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and colleagues.

In addition, in that younger group, women had a greater risk of dying within 30 days of hospital discharge compared with men, a difference that persisted through the end of the study period (OR 1.61, 95% CI 1.25-2.08), the researchers reported online in the Journal of Women\’s Health.
