EXERCISE TESTS IN UNSTABLE ANGINA SUSPECTS

Abstract


The review is devoted to exercise tests (ET) potential in patients with different forms of coronary heart disease (CHD) exacerbation and suspected unstable angina. It is well known that unstable angina untreated pharmacologically is a contraindication for ET. Of interest in clinical practice is diagnosis, risk assessment and treatment policy in patients with chest pain. The main focus is on ET conduction in unstable angina suspects with low and intermediate risk, on safety and validity of ET conduction in these patients.
