dc.description.abstractBorski, Catherine A., Gender Differences: Making the decision to seek treatment for symptoms of acute myocardial infarction. Masters of Public Health (Health Behavior), May, 2000, 57 pp., reference list, 37 titles. The purpose of this study was to investigate the problem: Do differences in interpretation and response to symptoms of AMI account for additional delay in seeking treatment in women compared with men? The sample consisted of 50 (21 women, 29 men) post-myocardial infarction patients in a large, non-profit, teaching hospital in central Texas. Participants were interviewed within 72 hours of admission using the Revised Response to Symptoms questionnaire. In this study, it was found that there was a statistically significant difference between the cognitive and emotional processes that men and women use when making the decision to seek treatment for symptoms of AMI.
