Cost and Outcomes of Assessing Patients with Chest Pain in an Australian Emergency Department

  • : Online

Patients presenting with chest pain represent a large group of adult emergency department (ED) presentations. The most common serious underlying causes for this symptom are acute coronary syndromes (ACS), incorporating acute myocardial infarction and unstable angina pectoris.

Over 5.5 million people presented to EDs in the United States in 2007 to 2008 with a primary complaint of chest pain, yet only 13% of those were diagnosed with ACS.1 The number of patients presenting to EDs in Australia with a possible ACS is unknown.
