Chest Pain, Acute Coronary Syndrome, and Coronary Artery Disease – My Minicourse

I’m using the Episode List of The Curbsiders Podcasts to review various primary care topics. Today I reviewed #5: Want to dominate chest pain? Wield the power of cardiac imaging and stress testing. APRIL 20, 2016

After I reviewing this episode, I reviewed my posts on Acute Coronary Syndrome and on Coronary Artery Disease. I don’t recommend reviewing the podcast.

Basically, today’s post is a “meta-course” on Acute Coronary Syndrome and on Coronary Artery disease. The four posts that I’ve linked to will provide a quick review of the two topics. In Additional Resources below there is a link to two outstanding EMCrit podcasts on ACS.

First, I reviewed my post When is The Evaluation of New or Changed Chest Pain Appropriate in the Office From The 2012 SIHD Guideline Posted on August 5, 2014

Second,  I reviewed my post Determining Low Risk Chest Pain Using The Modified Heart Score From Emergency Medicine Cases #64 Posted on March 27, 2016

Third, I reviewed my post Imaging Of Acute Coronary Syndrome: “Appropriate Utilization of Cardiovascular Imaging in Emergency Department Patients With Chest Pain” Posted on November 27, 2017.

The above post well covers evaluation of Acute Coronary Syndrome using the article 2015 ACR/ACC/AHA/AATS/ACEP/ASNC/NASCI/SAEM/SCCT/SCMR/SCPC/        SNMMI/ STR/STS Appropriate Utilization of Cardiovascular Imaging in Emergency Department Patients With Chest Pain [PubMed Abstract] [Full Text HTML] [Full Text PDF]. J Am Coll Cardiol. 2016 Feb 23;67(7):853-79. doi: 10.1016/j.jacc.2015.09.011.
