Cardiac disease is the number one killer of women in the United States. Women tend to delay seeking treatment longer then men with cardiac symptoms. Many women present with less typical symptoms such as backache, shortness of breath or fatigue. Often vague or atypical symptoms are mistaken for common maladies such as flu or indigestion. Health care professionals tend to discount the possibility of cardiac disease in women especially in younger women, since the onset of cardiac disease is much later in women. The purpose of this research project is to examine symptoms and symptom interpretation from the perspective of both women with cardiac disease and advanced practice nurses (APNs). A major goal is to compare and contrast perceptions of the 2 groups to discover disparities between women and APN's. A convenience sample of 20 women with cardiac diagnoses and 4 advanced practice nurses will be interviewed on tape. Analysis will provide a description of the symptoms experienced by women and compare their experiences to the perceptions of nurses. The goal of this research is to develop strategies to facilitate rapid entry into the health care system.
