Nonspecific electrocardiographic abnormalities are associated with increased length of stay and adverse cardiac outcomes in prehospital chest pain.

Heart Lung 2018 Oct 8. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

University of Pittsburgh, 3500 Victoria Street, Pittsburgh PA 15261, United States. Electronic address:

Background: Nonspecific ST-T repolarization (NST) abnormalities alter the ST-segment for reasons often unrelated to acute myocardial ischemia, which could contribute to misdiagnosis or inappropriate treatment. We sought to define the prevalence of NST patterns in patients with chest pain and evaluate how such patterns correlate with the eventual etiology of chest pain and course of hospitalization.

Methods: This was a prospective observational study that included consecutive prehospital chest pain patients from three tertiary care hospitals in the U. Read More
