The result showed a lack in communication between the patient and the staff. The patients experienced a lack of information about the disease. It emerged that patient thought the information assert the medical were more important compare to nurses who considered the riskfactors, medicine as well as the diet as the most important during the hospitalization. The caregivers need a high competence to be able to give a correct diagnose, and knowledge about the differences in symptoms and pain between women and men. The women more often had diffuse pain compared to men. The reason of women delaying seeking care was the diffuse symptoms and that the women neglected the pain. The women’s diffuse symptoms combined with their socioeconomic situation, led to a delayed arrival to the emergency department. The treatment was different between the genders, where men in a higher extent received angiography, which led to a poorer treatment and higher mortality in women.
