CCS angina klassifikation

Canadian Cardiovascular Society’s angina klassifikation:1

CCS Klass
IOrdinary physical activity, such as walking and climbing stairs, does not cause angina.  Angina with strenuous, rapid, or prolonged exertion at work or recreation.
IISlight limitation of ordinary activity.  Walking or climbing stairs rapidly, walking up hill, walking or stair climbing after meals, in cold, in wind, or when under emotional stress or during the first few hours after awakening may cause pain.  Walking more than 2 blocks on the level and climbing more than one flight of stairs at a normal pace and in normal conditions. 
IIIMarked limitation of ordinary physical activity.  Walking 1-2 blocks on a level and climbing one flight stairs at normal pace results in angina.    
IVInability to carry on any physical activity without discomfort.  Anginal syndrome may be present at rest.

Klassifikationen liknar NYHA-klassifikationen för hjärtsvikt (ska inte förväxlas med CCS=chronic coronary syndrome).
