abstract

  • An abnormal ST/HR index identifies men in whom therapy aimed at reducing CHD risk factors reduces the risk of CHD death by 61%. These findings support the application of heart rate adjustment of ST depression for screening of asymptomatic subjects at increased risk of CHD to identify those who will benefit most from risk factor-reduction programs.
