5 Multiple choice questions

  1. - treadmill
    - leg ergometer
    - arm ergometer
  2. - Sensitivity = 70% (7 of 10 patients w/ CAD will have '+' test)
    - Specificity = 90% (9 of 10 patients w/o CAD will have '-' test)
  3. 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
  4. - chronic infectious disease

  3. List some typical reasons that people are referred to a clinic for exercise testing- unstable angina
