ACS vs CAD?
- 0Oct 13, '13 by Twisted NurseDoes anyone know the difference between Acute Coronary Syndrome and Coronary Artery Disease?
- 0Oct 13, '13 by MendedHeartI look at it like this...
Hyperlipidemia, smokung, genetics cause CAD. When the CAD gets bad enough before intervention, and the Coronary arteries become occluded causing ischemia to the heart muscle usually angina present, or other symptoms such as diaphoretic, arm pain etc..
I associate Acute MI with Acute Coronary Syndrome
