Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)/Chest Pain

AUTHOR:
Steven Lahti
LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
  1. Recognize risk factors, signs, and symptoms that point towards cardiogenic chest pain.
  2. Have a differential for chest pain that includes non-cardiac causes.
  3. Elicit key historical features when interviewing patients presenting with chest pain to narrow the differential.
  4. Distinguish chronic stable angina from angina due to acute coronary syndromes.
  5. Use EKG and biomarkers in patients with acute coronary syndromes to distinguish STEMI from unstable angina and NSTEMI.
  6. Recognize patterns of myocardial injury and infarction on EKG.
  7. Recognize the need for emergent revascularization in STEMI.
  8. Provide optimal acute medical therapy for patients with ACS.
  9. Anticipate acute and chronic complications of myocardial infarction.
  10. Provide optimal preventive therapies for patients with coronary artery disease and anti-anginal regimens for those with chronic stable angina.

Clip Content from an Access site

Clipping allows you to browse content on the MH Medical sites that your institution is subscribed and select (or "clip") it to be added to a learning module.

To begin clipping

, select the site(s) from the following and browse for the content that you want to clip:
  • You have access to:


How to clip content from a textbook

  • Step 1: Select the scissors icon from the toolbar.
  • Step 2: Move the pointer to the chapter title, section title, paragraph, figure title or table title that you want to clip.
  • Step 3: Clip once on the applicable content.

You will then be prompted to identify which learning module the content should be added.

How to clip other types of content

Other non-textbook types of content can be clipped such as multimedia, audio files, cases, learning tools, and lectures. To clip these types of content, select the "Clip" button that appears next to item that you want clipped.
