[select name="pain" value="One Feature=10|Two Features=20|Three Features=30"] <-- Pain has how many of the following features:
- A - Substernal location
- B - Provoked by exertion or stress
- C - Relieved by rest or nitroglycerin

Interpretation and recommendations:
One approach to pretest probability is to consider <20% low, 20-80% intermediate, and >80% high.
Based on your interpretation of pretest probability levels above, consider:
For high pretest probability: exercise stress test may be performed to aid with prognosis and management.
For intermediate pretest probability: exercise stress test may be performed to aid with diagnosis.
For low pretest probability: exercise stress test may have a role in some circumstances, but is not generally recommended.
