  1. - greatest when pre-test likelihood is intermediate to high probability of CAD
    - Little value in testing individuals who are asymptomatic
  2. - 3-4 on angina scale
    - drop in SBP >= 10 mmHg
    - ventricular tachycardia
    - fatigue
  3. Bruce or Ellestad:
    - good for young ppl b/c the between-stage graduations of grade and speed are more aggresive
    USAFSAM or Naughton
    - Food for older ppl b/c more gradual between-stage progressions of grade and speed
  4. - likelihood that diagnostic test will lead to a positive CAD diagnosis

  5. What is the formula used to determine positive predictive value and negative predictive value1) 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
