stress test
Slide NumberStress Test
  • Conducted to observe and record the patient’s cardiovascular response to measured exercise challenges.
holter monitor
Slide NumberHolter Monitor
  • A portable system for recording the cardiac activity of a patient over a 24-hour period or longer.
  • The patient must keep a journal of all stressful events and activities during the entire time the monitor is worn.
  • A medical assistant is often responsible for instructing the patient in applying and removing the monitor.
patient education
Slide NumberPatient Education
  • Heart disease and stroke account for more than one third of all deaths.
  • Talk to the patient about factors that could be modified, and give him or her encouragement for any attempt at complying with these suggestions.
  • Include visual aids, posters, brochures.
