CHRONIC CORONARY SYNDROMES
Treatment Guideline Chart
Chronic coronary syndromes, also called stable coronary artery disease (CAD), stable ischemic heart disease (SIHD), chronic stable angina or stable angina pectoris, is a clinical syndrome characterized by squeezing, heaviness or pressure discomfort in the chest, neck, jaw, shoulder, back, or arms which is usually precipitated by exertion and/or emotional stress and relieved by rest and/or Nitroglycerin.
It is caused by myocardial ischemia that is commonly associated with narrowing of the coronary arteries.
Angina is stable when it is not a new symptom and when there is no deterioration in frequency, duration or severity of episodes.
