a factor with levels Nonusable Usable. An assesment of whether QWave is reliable.

STcode

a factor with levels Nonusable Usable. An assesment of whether STchange is reliable.

STchange

A reading from an electrocardiogram; a factor with levels No Yes. An STchange indicates a blockage of the coronary artery.

SuffHeartF

Sufficient heart frequency; a factor with levels No, Yes

Hypertrophi

a factor with levels No, Yes. Hypertrophy refers to an increased size of the heart muscle due to exercise.
