August 2011: Acute Coronary Syndrome, Questions

1. What anti-coagulants and/or anti-platelet agents do you use in a patient with a STEMI?  In an NSTEMI?

2.  How do you identify and manage patients with unstable angina?

3.  How do you risk stratify patients with chest pain?  Do you use any clinical decision rules?

4.  How reassuring is a recent (< 1 year) negative stress test in managing a patient with chest pain? How about a recent “normal” cath (i.e., < 30% blockage, no intervention)?
