Abstract

The evaluation of patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) with chest pain can be very challenging for the clinician. The early identification of patients with coronary artery disease from those who have other causes of chest pain is critical to delivering appropriate medical care. It is estimated that 8 million patients present annually to the emergency department with chest pain 1 and that only a small subset of then will ultimately be diagnosed as having acute coronary syndrome (ACS).
