Prof. Rogin shared a story of five women who were hospitalized in the department, one of whom suffered a heart attack at the age of 48 despite having no risk factors. Upon arrival at the hospital, she was immediately taken for catheterization. The other women were diagnosed with broken heart syndrome, characterized by changes in the EKG and normal arteries. Prof. Rogin explained that the syndrome is caused by stress, which releases large amounts of adrenaline that affect heart function. Fortunately, the heart returns to normal function after a few weeks. He recommended finding ways to calm the mind, such as sports activity or meditation. He also emphasized the importance of seeking medical treatment if feeling unwell.
