NSG 6420 Quiz 1 . Question : Which of the following is the most important question to ask during cardiovascular health history? Student Answer: Number of offspring Last physica... l exam Sudden death of a family member Use of caffeine Instructor Explanation: The sudden death of a family member is an important question to ask in the health history because it reveals the cardiovascular disease risk of the patient. Sudden death is usually due to an acute cardiovascular event, such as myocardial infarction, cardiac dysrhythmia, or stroke. Family history is particularly important for cardiac assessment because CVD, HTN, hyperlipidemia, and other vascular diseases often have a familial association that is not easily ameliorated by lifestyle changes. If there are deaths in the family related to CVD, determine the age and exact cause of death, because CVD at a young age in the immediate family carries an increased risk compared with CVD in an elderly family member. Ask about sudden death, which might indicate a congenital disease such as Marfan's syndrome. This is especially important to ask during pre-sports physicals because sudden death in athletes is often related to congenital or familial heart disease. Familial hyperlipidemia is autosomal dominant and often leads to CAD and MI at a young age. Family history of obesity and type 2 diabetes are also secondary risk factors for heart disease because the familial tendency for these is strong. Ask about smoking in the house, as secondhand smoke is a risk factor for respiratory and cardiac disease. (Goolsby 167-168) Goolsby, Mary J., Laurie Grubbs.

These symptoms are referred to as angina equivalents and can also include fatigue or breathlessness. Some patients may have no symptoms or atypical ones so that CAD may not be diagnosed until they experience a myocardial infarction.
