age

age

bp

diastolic blood pressure

chol

serum cholesterol in mg/dl

hr

maximum heart rate achieved

old_peak

ST depression induced by exercise relative to rest

vessels

glucose_high

indicates a fasting blood sugar over 120 mg/dl

cp_typical

typical angina

cp_atypical

atypical angina

cp_nonanginal

non-anginal pain

ecg_abnormal

indicates a ST-T wave abnormality (T wave inversions and/or ST elevation or depression of > 0.05 mV)

ecg_estes

probable or definite left ventricular hypertrophy by Estes' criteria

slope_flat

a flat ST curve during peak exercise

slope_downsloping

a downwards-sloping ST curve during peak exercise

thal_reversible

Preprocessing

The original dataset contained 13 variables. The nominal of these were dummycoded, removing the first category. No precise information regarding variables chest_pain, thal and ecg could be found, which explains their obscure definitions here.
