OBJECTIVE Despite multiple inquiries, there are no available tests to definitively detect blunt myocardial injury. The evaluation of patients with chest wall injuries without other indications for intensive care unit (ICU) admission has ranged from a single emergency department electrocardiogram (ECG) to 72 hours of continuous electrocardiographic monitoring. Recently, signal-averaged ECG and serum cardiac troponin T have demonstrated clinical utility in the evaluation of ischemic heart disease… CONTINUE READING
