Acute rule-out of non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome in the (pre)hospital setting by HEART score assessment and a single point-of-care troponin: rationale and design of the ARTICA randomised trial.

Goaris W A Aarts, Cyril Camaro, Robert-Jan van Geuns, Etienne Cramer, Roland R J van Kimmenade, P Damman, Pierre M van Grunsven, Eddy Adang, Paul Giesen, Martijn Rutten, Olaf Ouwendijk, Marc E R Gomes, Niels van Royen,

INTRODUCTION:Because of the lack of prehospital protocols to rule out a non-ST-segment elevation acute coronary syndrome (NSTE-ACS), patients with chest pain are often transferred to the emergency department (ED) for thorough evaluation. However, in low-risk patients, an ACS is rarely found, resulting in unnecessary healthcare consumption. Using the HEART (History, ... Read more >>
