Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This four-page illustrated handout educates people about coronary artery disease (CAD), also called heart disease or atherosclerosis, which occurs when the arteries that supply blood to heart muscle become hardened and narrowed by fatty deposits called plaque, and blood flow is decreased. It identifies risk factors for CAB as well as its symptoms, clarifying that a person should call 911 if they have any of these signs. The document discusses care for CAB, defining tests such as the electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG), cardiac magnetic resonance imaging test (MRI), stress test, echocardiogram, chest x-ray, and blood tests, and outlines its treatment.
