Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to Dr Wasim Javed, ST6 in Cardiology, about the diagnosis and management of Angina. Taking a theoretical case we talk through symptoms, differentials, diagnosis, including the guidelines and practicalities of different types of functional and non-functional tests, as well types of angina and their management. It was useful to understand the initial management once diagnosed, and where further investigations or referrals/discussions with cardiology come in. As well as the above, we discuss the difference between medical management and stenting and some of the third line anti-anginal medications.
