- Platelet Function [ Time Frame: 12 hours ]Platelet function will be measured with PFA-100 test which has been shown to correlate with an increased risk for cardiovascular events in several well conducted studies and in a meta-analysis. The PFA-100 measures the number of seconds required for a clot to form in whole blood which is passed through an aperture in a cartridge coated with epinephrine. It is meant to imitate clotting in human arteries.
- Cardiac Electrophysiology [ Time Frame: 1 week ]A 20-minute supine 12-lead Holter ECG will allow the quantification of a series of standard ECG parameters as well as provide insight into frequency-domain HRV parameters, QRS duration and morphology, using signal-averaged ECG (SAECG), repolarization morphology, and variability utilizing specialized programs.
