Cardiac events are the major cause of morbidity and mortality in patients undergoing non-cardiac surgery, and new guidelines issued today by the European Society of Cardiology address this common and complicated challenge.
Researchers may be able to predict future severe heart attacks in patients with known, stable coronary artery disease (CAD) using coronary calcium scoring, according to a new study.

Using cardiac CT scans on low risk chest pain patients can reduce costs and shorten the length of hospital stays, researchers in Seattle said. A cardiac CT, or computed tomography, is much less expensive and time consuming than the traditional standard of care workup comprising enzyme tests, nuclear stress testing and electrocardiograms, researchers at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, said. Cardiac CT workups in low risk chest pain patients decreased the length of...
The use of cardiac CT for low-risk chest pain patients in the emergency department, instead of the traditional standard of care (SOC) workup, may reduce a patientâ€™s length of stay and hospital charges, according to a study performed at the University of Washington School of Medicine, Seattle, WA.
The cardiac stress test is a diagnostic test used in Cardiac pathology for the purpose of patient diagnosis. It measures the heart’s function while placing a heavier workload on the heart. The cardiologist cannot be at the patient’s side while at work, under stress, during a workout or pushed to the limit so this test mimics those activities in a controlled setting. How it is Performed The stress is created by increasing the workload on the cardiac system. This can be accomplished by...
