I am wondering how your Ed treats chest pain. We get EKG in 15 mins, start IV give IV nitroglycerin, Zofran,Ativan, Dilaudid.5, Asa, and Plavix and chest X-ray and cardiac panel. What are your guys orders like

We do EKG within 10, heploc, O2, ENCASA (Someplaces I have worked go for chewable ASA), SL nitro x3. Full cardiac profile w troponin, full coag profile. CXR. If unrelieved EKG and start IV nitro with MD approval. Further Rx pending immediate MD eval.
