Clinical cardiology guidelines often direct decision making based on patient symptoms. However, there is little data and direction on the most appropriate situations to evaluate for myocardial ischemia without classical symptoms. Further, even less data exists to inform clinicians on how best to mitigate any risks related to asymptomatic myocardial ischemia. To fill this gap, further prospective studies would be helpful to identify thresholds on when to identify asymptomatic myocardial ischemia and how best to improve outcomes in those who have it. Following this activity learners will be able to appreciate the potential reality and clinical risk related to asymptomatic myocardial ischemia and identify the risk factors in a higher risk cohort which were associated with asymptomatic myocardial ischemia.
