The aim of this study was to determine the long-term prognostic value of the Duke Activity Status Index–estimated metabolic equivalents (METs) values among women with suspected ischemic heart disease. At a median of 9.6 years, the incidence of death was 23.4% in those with METs <4.8 versus 8.2% in METs >9.9, P <.01. In conclusion, use of the simple, patient-reported Duke Activity Status Index could help identify higher-risk women with suspected ischemic heart disease for targeted risk management.
