Abstract

A 62-year old male with a history of hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and prior tobacco use is referred to the clinic for evaluation of worsening dyspnea on exertion. He has had diabetes mellitus for >10 years managed on oral agents. He is also a former 30 pack-year smoker (quit 5 years earlier). His medical regimen includes aspirin, pravastatin, lisinopril, and glyburide.
