    - Gender - women have lower pretest likelihood than men
    - Symptoms - those w/ symptoms have much higher pretest likelihood
  2. - Positive Predictive Value = True Positive/(TP + false positive)
    - Negative Predictive Value = True Negative/ (TF + False Negative)

5 True/False Questions

  1. Describe the 5 aspects of the bayesian method of probability- treadmill
    - leg ergometer
    - arm ergometer


  2. Describe the sensitivity, specificity of exercise testing diagnostics with ECG. What is a better method?1) Sensitivity - % of persons test who have CAD and show positive test
    2) Specificity - % of persons test that don't have CAD and show negative test
    3) Predictive Value - how accurately a test result correctly identifies a presence or absence of CAD
    4) Positive predication value - % of subjects w/ a positive test that have CAD
    5) Negative predicted value - % subjects w/ negative who don't have CAD


  3. What's the difference b/t absolute and relative contraindications for exercise testing?Absolute:
    - potential serious medical complications of ETT is completed
    - risks of performing ETT outweigh benefits
    - a potential medical concern is present
    - benefit vs. risk of performing ETT should be evaluated


  4. Lists the tests to determine true positive and true negatives1) Determine # of ppl in population w/ disease
    2) Determine # w/ disease that will have '+' testing (# w/ disease x 0.7)
    3) Determine # w/ disease that will have '-' test (Total diseased # - # w/ '+' test)
    4) Do the same for those w/o disease


  5. When would you find value in doing a CAD diagnostic test?- treadmill
    - leg ergometer
    - arm ergometer
