John Miller, a 65-year old patient, was referred to the cardiologist’s office for an evaluation. The patient had recently started an exercise program for weight loss. For the last 3 weeks, following exercise, he had noticed radiating chest pain (angina pectoris) that stopped after rest. This condition had worsened in the last week. The cardiologist ordered a stress echocardiogram. The stress echo results suggested that the patient had coronary artery disease. The patient was scheduled for a cardiac catheterization the next morning. It was noted in the patient’s chart that he smoked two packs of cigarettes per day.

  1. What is the abbreviation for coronary artery disease?
  2. What symptoms suggest that this patient is suffering from coronary artery disease and not some other disorder?
  3. Why is it important to test the heart under stress rather than obtaining a resting echocardiogram?
  4. Why is a cardiac catheterization needed in addition to the stress echo?
  5. What lifestyle changes should the patient make to prevent further heart attacks?
