Condition #2: Unstable Angina

A patient with stable angina is likely to know the cause and know their limitations, helping them to prevent triggering an attack. Unstable angina, however, can be far more unpredictable and can happen when the patient is resting, or even when sleeping. The term unstable angina is also used to describe new onsets of angina.

Unstable angina is a more serious condition than stable angina and should encourage you to seek medical assistance. The attacks can sometimes last for up to 10 minutes and attacks can mean that some patients will need to be hospitalized for their safety. The condition is also often referred to as Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS).
