Unstable angina is often associated with abnormal resting ECG changes, ranging from ST-segment depression to deep T-wave inversion, but not ST-segment elevation. Patients with a history of unstable angina and resting ECG changes of ST-segment depression or T-wave inversion (but not STsegment elevation) and CK enzyme elevation are referred to as having suffered NSTEMI. Unstable angina, NSTEMI and ST-segment elevation MI (STEMI) together constitute ACS. Silent myocardial ischemia Myocardial ischemia may also be asymptomatic.
Less commonly, there may be signs of hyperdynamic circulatory states such as anemia, hyperthyroidism or fever. As there is a paucity of physical signs, an excellent clinical history is crucial in making the diagnosis of IHD.

When there is transient papillary muscle ischemia, a functional and sometimes fluctuating systolic murmur of mitral incompetence may be heard at the mitral area.
