ABSTRACT
The article discusses whether a nomogram model based on clinical and exercise variables predict mortality in patients with suspected coronary artery disease (CAD) and normal electrocardiography (ECG). Multivariable associations between clinical and exercise variables and mortality were assessed using Cox modeling and used to develop a nomogram. It is concluded that the nomogram model can predict mortality in patients with suspected CAD and normal ECG.
