Coronary Artery Disease Risk Assessment
Coronary artery disease (CAD) occurs when the arteries that bring blood to the heart muscle (coronary arteries) become hardened and narrowed. The arteries harden and narrow because of a buildup of plaque on the inner walls of the arteries. This is called atherosclerosis. Narrow coronary arteries don't allow as much blood to flow to the heart. This reduces the amount of oxygen the heart receives and can lead to angina, heart failure, irregular heart rhythm, and heart attack.
CAD is the most common type of heart disease. It is the leading cause of death in the United States in both men and women. Other names for CAD are coronary heart disease (CHD), heart disease, and ischemic heart disease.
First, select your gender, then answer the resulting questions to help determine your risk for CAD.
