Coronary artery disease risk assessment
Coronary artery disease (CAD) occurs when the coronary arteries become hardened and narrowed. Significant narrowing of the coronary arteries can reduce blood flow to the heart. This limits the amount of oxygen the heart receives and can lead to angina, heart failure, irregular heart rhythm, and heart attack.
It is the leading cause of death in the U.S. in both men and women. Answer the following questions to determine your risk for CAD.
