Just some important things to ask about when you suspect a patient has a cardiac problem. The risk factors are very important to ask almost everyone (because practically everyone in North America is at risk for/has heart disease).

  1. the method i use for risk factors is ABCDEF:
    A – age
    B – blood pressure – hypertension
    C – cholesterol – hypocholesterolaemia
    D – diabetes mellius
    E – exercise
    F – FHx; fat
