Effect of a new chest pain clinic on cardiology referral patterns

Abstract

Background: There is increased awareness of the need for cardiovascular (CVS) risk monitoring in the Northern Ireland population in general, and amongst rheumatoid arthritis and SLE patients in particular, who have a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease. No clear guidelines exist for cardiovascular risk monitoring in osteoporosis, and the prevalence and associations of known CVS risk factors are largely unquantified.
