For LBBB, a chemical stress test with dipyridamole thallium or dobutamine echo is greatly preferred. Can't exercise? com Chapter 1: Cardiology Angiography Positive stress test = coronary angiography Those with a "reversible" defect need angiography. A reversible defect is a defect in perfusion with exercise, not visible at rest. The main purpose of angiography is to determine who should undergo bypass surgery. Only stenosis >70% in a vessel is significant. • 1- or 2-vessel disease: medical management and possible angioplasty (PCI) - Angioplasty may decrease symptoms compared with medications, but there is no clear mortality benefit with the use of angioplasty in chronic stable angina.

The goal is heart rate <100-110/min. com Chapter 1: Cardiology • Metoprolol: 5 mg IV every 5 minutes for 3 doses. Then start oral 50 mg bid. Maximum 200 bid. 35 mg/kg. Then start oral 30 mg qid. Maximum 120 qid. Both metoprolol and diltiazem should control the rate within 30 minutes. If one of these does not work and systolic BP is >90-100 mmHg, you can add the other. If BP is low or borderline, use digoxin. Digoxin is not a first choice in stable patients because it is not great at controlling the heart rate on exertion.
