Predictive Symptoms of AMI

R.E.B.E.L.EM - March 14, 2019 - By Salim Rezaie
"...Author Conclusion:
“In this large multicenter trial, only 4 symptoms were associated with the diagnosis of AMI, and no symptoms that were associated with a non-AMI diagnosis.”
Clinical Take Home Point: 
Pay closer attention to patients with chest pain that radiates to their right arm. In this multicenter study of patients with chest pain presenting to the ED, chest pain radiation to the right arm is more predictive of AMI than chest pain radiating to the left arm."
