Question Answer
If a patient describes a sudden onset of pain that typically occurs predictably, lasts for less than 15 min and is exercise induced, which category of Angina would best fit?Stable Angina
In regards to patients experiencing ischemic symptoms, which of the following statements are true. a. Ischemic symptoms may be produced when occlusion reaches 75% of the cross-sectional area of the artery. b. In most instances of an acute coronary event, the vessels typically are less than 50% occluded by plaque growth. c. With outward proliferation, the size of the arterial lumen is progressively reduced (stenosis); thus, blood flow may be chronically decreased causing the demand for oxygen to exceed the supply thereby causing ischemic pain.A & B

T/F: A stable angina can occur at any time.False
If a patient on a nonselective beta blocker receives a systemic dose of epinephrine, what is the effect?beta blocker prevents the vasodilation, leaving unopposed alpha vasoconstriction
Oral disease has a relationship with all of the following except: A) coronary heart disease B) stroke C) adverse pregnancy outcomes D) diabetes E) bacterial pneumonia F) All of the AboveOral disease relates to all of them... so all of the above
Which of the following can be expected after a systemic dose of epinephrine is given to a patient taking non-selective beta-blockersAlpha vasoconstriction (leading to acute hypertensive crisis)
T/f: Sustained HTN can lead to hypertrophy of the Right Ventricle to compensate for the elevated BP.False
