Identifying Emergency Department Patients With Chest Pain who are at Low Risk for Acute Coronary Syndromes

A missed diagnosis of acute coronary syndromes can be life threatening, but what about patients who appear to be at low risk of ACS? What are the best ways to make sure those at risk are flagged without ordering unnecessary testing? In this issue, you will learn to:

  • Order, manage, and evaluate ECG and biomarker testing, the first line of risk stratification
  • Identify the differences in the most-used clinical risk scores: TIMI, HEART, Vancouver, and EDACS
  • Assess the consensus guidelines on the value of confirmatory testing for low-risk patients
  • Discuss the latest evidence on high-sensitivity troponin testing and the accelerated diagnostic protocol
  • Manage the special diagnostic challenges with women, the young, the old, and those with previously treated CAD

  • Recognize sentinel injuries
  • Identify injury patterns that are specific for abuse
  • Describe the range of findings present in abusive head trauma
  • Take a patient history that will reveal key indicators of abuse
  • Order diagnostic studies that reveal abuse, while minimizing radiation
