Answer

Before hospital discharge, patients with unstable angina and their family members should be educated about the manifestations of MI and the actions that must be taken in that eventuality. They should also receive training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).

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