EVERY SINGLE TIME I HAVE TAKEN A CPR CLASS I have had to be that person who points out that the training videos ALWAYS frame the “male” symptoms as the default universal heart attack experience while the “female” symptoms are framed as though they’re a deviation from the norm rather than the primary symptom set that cis women experience ALSO I just showed this post to my roommate who is an MD at a clinic that specializes in care for the LGBT community in the Baltimore area I asked her whether hormones were responsible for the difference in the “malefemale” symptom arrays I asked how that would apply to her trans patients which she treats a LOT of trans patients She said basically that the longer you’ve taken testosterone the more likely you are to get the intense chest pressure and the arm pain versus the upper back pressure and shortness of breath Obviously I am not a doctor myself consult your own health care provider etc Reblogging this comment because this is the FIRST TIME I’ve ever seen someone address what XYZ medical condition would look like in trans patients Also this is partly why my great-grandma died the male doctor dismissed her heart attack as basically indigestion because she didn’t have the typical male symptoms Oh my God someone was able to answer the trans patient question!
