“If the patient did not get the angiogram and a revascularization, he should have a pre-discharge stress test,” Dr S Ramakrishnan says. “A stress test also helps find out whether thrombolysis was successful,” he adds. “Pre-discharge tests are not needed for patients who have undergone a revascularization procedure. Routine control of blood pressure and sugar should do. The ejection fraction at discharge must hold for a few years and a good dose of statin keeps lipid profile in check.”
