Amal Mattu discusses two large branches of pitfalls in patients being evaluated for ACS: EKG pitfalls and HISTORY red flags. We discuss pitfalls and red flags relating to medical legal risks when dealing with chest pain.

Additional talking points:

  • ECG: 25-50 % misses, look closer, nonspecific and normal aren’t to be dismissed, repeat ECG’s, compare with old ones,

  • Hx: don’t be deterred to workup bc of age, women (gender bias)
