Given the difference in CHD incidence and prevalence as a function of age, race, and ethnicity, these findings are particularly alarming. As these data document the need for a better understanding of CVD risk factors by US women, enhanced and innovative strategies to disseminate knowledge should be developed and tailored to adequately communicate to diverse age and race/ethnicity groups. Additionally, the clinical presentation of CHD differs by sex. Women have higher rates of noncardiac chest pain than men (32,33) and experience heart disease approx 10 years later than men (29,30), which may, in turn, contribute to the clinical differences between men and women with CHD (2).

As such, accounting for the global risk for major CHD events has become a central method to estimating a patient’s likelihood for major adverse cardiac events (Table 1; 3). A commonly applied global risk score was developed based on the Framingham study participants and their offspring. Figure 4 details a recent analysis of the percent of low (<6% 10-year risk of cardiac death or MI) to high (>20% 10-year risk of cardiac death or MI) risk subsets of this study cohort in women and men across the age spectrum (1).
