Unlike several other branches of medicine, (e.g., pulmonology), primary cardiology has yet to fully develop a discipline of occupational cardiology. The authors outline an approach for including a focused occupational history in the CV work-up and present a graded, risk-stratified algorithm for occupational cardiologic assessment. This work-up can help clinicians make specific recommendations concerning working conditions, as these impact upon the patient’s CV status.
