News flash! Yet another new cardiac study from yet another group of respected researchers has been published in yet another medical journal suggesting that(…wait for it!) women receive poorer care during a heart attack compared to our male counterparts.(1)

As my irreverent Mayo Clinic heart sister and heart attack survivor Laura Haywood-Cory from North Carolina once observed in response to a 2011 Heart Sisterspost:

“We really don’t need yet another study that basically comes down to: Sucks to be female. Better luck next life!’, do we?”

Well, Laura – apparently we do.  Because those studies just keep on coming.
