The immediate management of acute coronary syndromes in primary care. The majority of patients who present to general practice with chest pain are unlikely to have an acute coronary syndrome. However, all patients who present with current or recent symptoms consistent with a cardiac cause require immediate investigation and treatment. Intermediate risk criteria include one or more of the following: a recent episode of pain at rest lasting longer than twenty minutes but pain-free at the time of examination, rest pain less than twenty minutes relieved by sublingual nitrates, new onset of pain within the past two weeks with moderate to high likelihood of coronary artery disease.
Based on this data, a question arises as to whether every patient presenting with possible acute coronary syndrome should undergo a CTA. The population studied in ROMICAT-I consisted of low to intermediate risk patients. Overall, CTA was shown to decrease the time to diagnosis and hospital stay for patients with possible ACS. Intermediate Coronary Syndrome - Circulation However, since the intermediate coro- nary syndrome probably follows episodes of further coronary artery narrowing or occlu- sion, but precedes myocardial

The modern or accepted view of the “intermediate coronary syndrome” has been well stated by Friedberg:1 “an exact diagnosis in acute syndromes of coronary heart disease is difficult or impossible in many cases, particularly those cases in which the clinical syndrome is atypical and those in which cardiac pain of ‘intermediate’ or long duration is unaccompanied by the classic Author: Richard S.

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is a syndrome (set of signs and symptoms) due to decreased blood flow in the coronary arteries such that part of the heart muscle is unable to function properly or dies.
The most common symptom is chest pain, often radiating to the left shoulder or angle of the jaw, crushing, central and associated with nausea and people with acute Specialty: Cardiology. Initial evaluation for high risk, intermediate risk and Low Risk Chest Pain begins the same.
See Acute Coronary Syndrome Immediate Management (includes giving Aspirin mg); Low Risk Chest Pain protocol is only per indications listed above. Acute coronary syndrome describes a range of conditions associated with sudden, reduced blood flow to the heart.
The blockage can be sudden and occur in one instant, or it may come and go over a period of time. Acute coronary syndrome encompasses a collection of three acute processes related to myocardial ischemia.

Patients with acute coronary syndromes may be divided into those who have had a myocardial infarction with ST elevation on their ECG, and those without ST elevation.
The latter group can be further classified as having a high, intermediate or low risk of Cited by: 2. Unstable angina(UA), the term originally described by Noble O Fowler in early s.

Acute coronary syndromes encompass a spectrum of conditions which include unstable angina, and myocardial infarction with or without ST-segment elevation.
Patients with different acute coronary syndromes may present similarly; definitive diagnosis is made on the basis of clinical presentation, ECG changes, and measurement of biochemical cardiac. Acute Coronary Syndrome covers the spectrum of clinical conditions ranging from unstable angina to non-ST elevation myocardial infarction and ST elevation myocardial infarction.
These life-threatening disorders are a major cause of emergency medical care, hospitalization and mortality. Management of Acute Coronary Syndromes is designed to provide busy clinicians. However, the recently presented data from ISCHEMIA (revascularization vs. optimal medical therapy in chronic coronary syndrome) and COMPLETE (nonculprit PCI vs.
conservative management in patients with ACS and multivessel disease) trials, may indicate that revascularization could have a fundamentally different outcomes depending on the clinical. The term acute coronary syndrome covers a broad spectrum of clinical situations, from unstable angina to ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI).
