Regardless of whether your patient is 25 or 85 years old, when they report chest pain, you should always treat it seriously.

Maybe the cause of the chest pain is nothing more than indigestion, a muscle strain, or some other innocuous problem. However, chest pain can potentially point to a more serious and life-threatening cause, such as an acute myocardial infarction (AMI).

For this reason, chest pain must always be considered cardiac in nature until proven otherwise.

Note: This article is intended as a refresher and should not replace best-practice care. Always refer to your facility’s policy on addressing chest pain.
