  1. Do patients' coronary risk factor reports predict acute cardiac ischemia in the emergency department ? A multicenter study.

    Article - En anglais

    The objective of the present study was to determine whether the presence of the classical coronary risk factors increases the likelihood of acute cardiac ischemia beyond that expected from clinical presentation and electrocardiogram.

    Clinical data and reports of classical coronary risk factors were collected prospectively from 1743 patients without clinically obvious coronary disease.

    Patients were selected from 5773 emergency department patients at 6 hospitals who presented with symptoms suggesting acute ischemia.

    We used logistic regression to determine the relative risk of each risk factor report for acute ischemia.
