Acute Chest Pain - Evaluation and Triage

Acute Chest Pain - Evaluation and Triage

This is a guideline "to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of diagnosing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in patients with acute chest pain. Improved diagnostic testing will reduce the number of patients with ACS who go undiagnosed after initial evaluation. ACS includes unstable angina and acute myocardial infarction (ST segment elevation MI [STEMI] and non ST segment elevation MI [NSTEMI])."
