BOSTON (CBS) – For years, experts have said that women tend to have different heart attack symptoms than men, but a new study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association finds that’s not true. Women have notoriously received unequal care when it comes to diagnosing and treating heart attacks compared to men. One prevailing thought has been that women don’t have the same classic symptoms as men, like chest pain. But when researchers studied the symptoms of people attending an emergency room in England, they found that chest pain was the most common symptom for both men and women. And an equa...

In this episode, Gabe talks with PsychCentral.com editor-in-chief Dr. John Grohol about the importance of planning for the end of life.  We all know that everybody dies, but at the same time, no one wants to think about their own inevitable death. Do you know how you would like the end of your life to go?  What if you needed to make that decision for a loved one? Do you know what they want? Would they want to be resuscitated? Do they want to die at home or in a hospital? Do you even know what kinds of decisions need to be made, or what the options are?  Listen in as Dr. John explains that there is a degre...

We present a patient who was admitted for carotid endarterectomy due to tight carotid stenosis and recent amaurosis fugax. His medical history included significant coronary artery disease with stable angina pectoris, hypertension with wide pulse pressure, chronic renal failure, and anemia. During preparation for surgery, the patient developed type 2 myocardial infarction with prolonged chest pain, ST depressions on electrocardiogram, and significant troponin elevations. The patient posed a serious clinical dilemma whether to continue with surgery despite the type 2 myocardial infarction or postpone the surgery. We discuss ...

In this study, approximately 10% of Transient STEMI had no culprit found:Early or late intervention in patients with transient ST ‐segment elevation acute coronary syndrome: Subgroup analysis of the ELISA‐3 trialOne must use all available data, including the ECG, to determine what happened.Final Diagnosis?If the troponin remained under the 99% reference, then it would be unstable angina.  If it rose above that level before falling, it would be acute myocardial injury due to ischemia, which is, by definition, acute MI.  If that is a result of plaque rupture, then it is a type I MI.  The clinical presentat...

We examined 9293 individuals from the Copenhagen General Population Study using nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy measurements of total cholesterol, free- and esterified cholesterol, triglycerides, phospholipids, and particle concentration. Fourteen subclasses of decreasing size and their lipid constituents were analysed: six subclasses were very low-density lipoprotein (VLDL), one intermediate-density lipoprotein (IDL), three low-density lipoprotein (LDL), and four subclasses were high-density lipoprotein (HDL). Remnant lipoproteins were VLDL and IDL combined. Mean nonfasting cholesterol concentration was 72...

“The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.” – Charles R. Swindoll For those who think that today is like every other day, perhaps dreading what’s on the agenda or wishing the day was over for any number of reasons, I have an interesting perspective to share. What you do every day when you wake up is so much more than a boring routine. Indeed, how you prepare yourself for the day shapes your experiences. That preparation involves choice. And, it’s all about choosing your attitude. You Choose Your Attitude You might not think about it...

Post by Smith and MeyersSam Ghali (https://twitter.com/EM_RESUS) just asked me (Smith):" Steve, do left main coronary artery *occlusions* (actual ones with transmural ischemia) have ST Depression or ST Elevation in aVR? "Smith and Meyers answer:First, LM occlusion is uncommon in the ED because most of these die before they can get a 12-lead recorded.But if they do present:The very common presentation of diffuse STD with reciprocal STE in aVR is NOT left main occlusion, though it might be due to subtotal LM ACS, but is much more often due to non-ACS conditions, especially demand ischemia. ...

Conclusion The cost savings associated with a CCTA first strategy to evaluate chest pain were ~$1 200 244.10. For a self-insured health system such as the Chickasaw Nation, these are very important cost savings.

ConclusionIn low-risk chest-pain patients according to pre-hospital risk assessment, acute healthcare utilization and costs are high, with limited added value. Possibly, if a complete risk assessment can be performed by ambulance paramedics, acute hospitalization of the majority of low-risk patients is not necessary, which can lead to substantial cost reduction.Trial IDDutch Trial Register [http://www.trialregister.nl]: trial number 4205.

Case submitted and written by Alex BraceyA man in his 50s with no significant past medical history presented from a local beach with epigastric " burning " pain that had been intermittent for 4 days until this morning when it became constant at rest. He had associated nausea and diaphoresis, but overall looked well and had arrived by private vehicle to front triage. An ECG was performed there and brought to me for review:What do you think?STE in V2-4 that might just barely meet STEMI criteriaSTE in aVL, and to a lesser extent lead IObvious reciprocal STD in II, III, aVFRegardless of whether this ECG truly meets S...
