This is helpful information. I love having a validated tool that I can turn to like the HEART score however, I work in an urgent care setting where getting a troponin would not practical or timely in making a decision. Any suggestions on how to further ensure I make the correct decision other than sending everyone with a suspicious story to the ER for evaluation? I feel like this could be the best practice in my setting if I suspect ACS at all.

Hi Zico, thx for the question. Unfortunately, without the troponin it is hard to find a reliable clinical decision tool... yes much easier if you have access to tons of testing!!
