EVALUATION OF CHEST PAIN

PROF: OF

CARDIOLOGY

LUMHS


Objectives
Objectives

  • To be able to rapidly and accurately assess a patient complaining of acute chest pain

  • To be able to formulate an accurate differential diagnosis for acute chest pain

  • To understand and be able to initiate basic initial therapy for a patient in acute chest pain


The background
The background:

  • Chest pain is one of the most common chief complaints of patients presenting to EDs annually.

  • 8-10% of the 119 million annual ED visits are for chest pain and related symptoms

    • Accurate diagnosis remains a challenge


Chest pain
CHEST PAIN

  • there are a lot of importment data of the pain:

    • localisation

    • radiation

    • onset of the pain

    • the type (press, smart,cutting)

    • dinamic of the pain (continouosly, ongoing, undulaiting)

    • answer to the medical therapy


The challenges
The challenges:

  • Patients presenting with chest pain who have life threatening underlying disease often look well on initial presentation

  • It is estimated that 8-10% of patients presenting with ACS are discharged mistakenly from the ED

  • These patients have 30 day mortality of 2%


Challenges cont
Challenges cont:

  • Missed MI is the most common cause for litigation stemming from ED treatment

  • Higher awards are recovered in medical malpractice lawsuits for missed MI than for any other condition

  • Internists are second only to family practitioners as the most likely group to be sued for missed MI


Chest pain1
Chest Pain

  • Visceral

    • Often referred

    • Aching, heaviness, discomfort

    • Difficult to localize pain

  • Somatic

    • Sharp, easily localized


Chest pain definitions
Chest Pain Definitions

  • Acute Chest Pain:

    • Acute - sudden or recent onset (usually within minutes to hours), presenting typically <24 hrs

    • Chest - thorax midaxillary to midaxillary line, xiphoid to suprasternum notch

    • Pain– noxious uncomfortable sensation

      • Ache or discomfort


Initial approach
Initial Approach

  • Triage

    • Chest pain

    • Smoking, FH and Marfans predispose

    • Usually 20s-40s, present with sudden onset dyspnea and pleuritic CP at rest

    • Physical findings include decreased chest excursion, decreased breath sounds, hyperresonance

    • Hypoxeima common, hypercapnea uncommon 2/2 perfusion of PTX but adequate ventilation with contralateral lung


Pneumothorax presentation1
Pneumothorax: Presentation

  • Secondary Spontaneous PTX

    • Seen in patients with underlying lung disease

    • Any lung disease predisposes however COPD most common

    • PCP, CF and TB also common causes

    • Similar physical presentation to PSP

    • ABG typically abnormal 2/2 underlying lung disease


Pneumothorax diagnosis
Pneumothorax: Diagnosis

  • CXR: Look for pleural line

  • Can be difficult in patients with COPD

  • CT scan can overestimate size of PTX




Pneumothorax treatment
Pneumothorax: Treatment

  • ABCD

  • Assess haemodynamic stability

    • If < 2cm and stable, can observe

  • Typically sudden onset and severe

  • Chest pain more common with type A dissections

  • Complicated by CVA, syncope, MI (RCA) or HF


Aortic dissection diagnosis
Aortic dissection: Diagnosis

  • Generally suspected by history/physical

  • Variations in pulses or blood pressure (>20 mmHG difference between R and L arm)

  • ECG: variable depending on complications

  • Imaging when stable

    • CXR: mediastinal widening

    • CT chest, TEE, MRI other options and all superior to TTE


Aortic dissection
Aortic Dissection:

  • Predisposing factors:

    • Aortic aneurysm

    • HTN

    • Vasculitis

Aortic Dissection: Management

  • Type A: Surgical

  • Type B and uncomplicated: Medical

  • Type B and complicated (major branch involved, continued expansion or aortic rupture

  • Long term management includes B blocker, serial imaging at 3, 6 and 12 months and reoperation if indicated


Acute management
Acute Management

  • ICU admission

  • Pain control: Morphine

  • Reduction of SBP to 100-120 or lowest tolerated, HR <60, intubate if unstable

    • IV B blocker 1st line (labetolol, propranolol, esmolol)

    • If HR <60 and SBP >100 with good mentation and renal function nitroprusside

    • If hypotensive, look for blood loss, tamponade or HF prior to giving volume

Pericarditis
Pericarditis

  • Chest pain (anterior chest, sharp, pleuritic, exacerbated by inspiration, can decrease with leaning forward, radiation to trapezius)

  • Often first sign of other systemic disease

  • Multiple possible etiologies, viral and autoimmune most common in US

  • Consider TB outside US


Pericarditis diagnosis
Pericarditis: Diagnosis

  • Typically need 2/4:

    • Chest pain

    • Friction rub

    • ECG changes (wide spread ST elevation with PR depression)

    • Pericardial effusion

  • Consider tamponade (sinus tachycardia, JVD, pulsus paradoxus, Kussmaul’s sign)



Pericarditis treatment
Pericarditis: Treatment

  • NSAIDs are mainstay of therapy (IBU or high dose ASA

  • Can also use colchicine or glucocorticoids

  • Tamponade: conservative management with monitoring, serial echo, volume expansion and treatment of underlying cause vs. pericardiocentesis


Myocarditis
Myocarditis

  • Presentation variable

  • Viral most common etiology in developed countries

  • Presents with HF, chest pain, sudden cardiac death or arrhythmias

    • coronary spasm

      • Prinzmetal angina (transient ST elevation)

      • myocardial infarction (if the ischemic period is to long)

    • coronary embolisation


Acute coronary syndrome diagnosis

  • Always consider chief complaint


Acs a word about troponin

Just because there is no troponin, doesn’t mean it’s not ACS

Just because there is troponin, doesn’t mean it’s ACS

Troponin is prognostic more than diagnostic

  • KEY: Commit to a diagnosis

  • Begin initial therapy

  • Call for help at any point you are not comfortable


Conclusions

Chest pain is one of the most frequently encountered complaints in both the inpatient and outpatient settings and is a significant financial burden on our health care system

Clinicians must be able to rapidly and accurately assess a patient with chest pain to maximize patient outcomes and minimize unnecessary workup

The evaluation of chest pain requires good history and physical exam skills, ECG, CXR and few other diagnostic tests

Conclusions:


Thank you all
THANK YOU ALL complaints in both the inpatient and outpatient settings and is a significant financial burden on our health care system
