Your heart is a pump. It’s a small chamber made out of muscle that makes your blood flow. Unfortunately, things tend to go wrong sometimes. The pump stutters, loses its rhythm, or stops completely. All of that is bad. Without your heart, your body doesn’t work very well. You’d think we know nearly everything about an organ of such great importance, but that’s not the case. Heart attacks tend to present differently in female patients than they do in male ones. But we don’t know much about those differences. One thing we do know for sure: breaking your heart is bad in both the literal and the metaphorical sense.
