1. A 72-year-old woman with a recent onset of syncopal episodes has been referred to a cardiology group by her family physician. As part of the patient's diagnostic workup, the nurse practitioner conducting the intake assessment has ordered a Holter monitor for 24 hours. Which of the following statements best captures an aspect of Holter monitoring? (Points : 0.4)

A Holter monitor is preferable to standard ECG due to its increased sensitivity to cardiac electrical activity.

The primary goal is to allow the cardiologist to accurately diagnose cardiomyopathies.

Accurate interpretation of the results requires correlating the findings with the activity that the woman was doing at the time of recording.

Holter monitors are normally set to record electrical activity of the heart at least once per hour.

Question 2.2. As part of the diagnostic workup for a male patient with a complex history of cardiovascular disease, the care team has identified the need for a record of the electrical activity of his heart, insight into the metabolism of his myocardium, and physical measurements, and imaging of his heart. Which of the following series of tests is most likely to provide the needed data for his diagnosis and care? (Points : 0.4)

Echocardiogram, PET scan, ECG Ambulatory ECG, cardiac MRI, echocardiogram

Serum creatinine levels, chest auscultation, myocardial perfusion scintigraphy Cardiac catheterization,

cardiac CT, exercise stress testing
