Lecture for January 30th, 2013: We’re going to admit that patient? A consideration of low risk chest pain

This month, we will discuss low risk chest pain and consider who we might think about sending home rather than admitting for a stress by reviewing the papers below and listening to a SMARTEM podcast.

Listen to the SMARTEM podcast here: Stress Testing: A Moment of Clarity

Paper to be reviewed:

Scheuermeyer FX, Innes G, Grafstein E, Kiess M, et al. Safety and efficiency of a chest pain diagnostic algorithm with selective outpatient stress testing for emergency department patients with potential ischemic chest pain. Ann Emerg Med. 2012 Apr;59(4):256-264.

Enjoy!
