Anti-platelet given to prevent blood clots from forming due to atherosclerotic plaques in the treatment of CAD
Medication given to lower cholesterol in the treatment of CAD to prevent further accumulation of atherosclerotic plaques

Complication of CAD; embolus in cerebral artery blocking blood flow to brain

Treatment post cardiac cath. May be up to 6 hours for femoral site to reduce risk of "popping the clot"
Priority blood test to determine cardiac damage in the patient complaining of chest pain
test done that assesses the electrical activity of the heart; used when patients complain of CP to rule out heart damage, arrhythmias or MI
