    Two worried parents came to your office to discuss a big problem for their child. You examine their 6 month old boy and tell them that he is very well. Then, they told you,they are very worried because their child may suffer from myocardial infarction. This because one of their cousin die from this diagnosis.

    What will you recommend to this parents?

    A patient 80-year-old female has had several episodes of syncope, all of which have occurred while she was returning to her room after breakfast. She complains of headache and she feels cold and weak. She takes nitroglycerin in the morning for a history of chest pain, but denies recent chest pain or shortness of breath.
