Answer

All patients should be educated regarding the critical role of smoking in the development of CAD. Smoking cessation classes should be offered to help patients avoid smoking after their MI.

For patient education resources, see the Heart Health Center and Cholesterol Center, as well as High Cholesterol, Cholesterol Charts (What the Numbers Mean), Lifestyle Cholesterol Management, Chest Pain, Coronary Heart Disease, Heart Attack, Angina Pectoris, Cholesterol-Lowering Medications, and Statins for Cholesterol.
