Diamond and Forrester Decision Rule for Likelihood of Cardiac Chest Pain
.....................................................................................................
Factors:

[select name="Q1" value="no=0|YES=1"] <-- Substernal chest pain

[select name="Q2" value="no=0|YES=1"] <-- Exertional chest pain

[select name="Q3" value="no=0|YES=1"] <-- Chest pain relieved with rest
Demographics:
[select name="Q4" value="30 to 39=10|40 to 49=20|50 to 59=30|60 to 69=40"] <-- Age (years)
[select name="Q5" value="Male=100|Female=0"] <-- Gender
