A new medical study looks at whether a person's gender influences the symptoms of a heart attack.

A team of Swiss researchers looked at nearly 2,500 men and women who came to the emergency room with chest pains over a six-year period.

Both genders described similar intensity and duration of pain.

Experts found no gender difference when it comes to a heart attack.

More than five million Americans each year go to the emergency room complaining of chest pains.
