BACKGROUND The thrombolysis in myocardial infarction (TIMI) risk score has been shown to risk stratify patients with suspected acute coronary syndromes (ACS) effectively in the emergency department (ED) but cannot be used to guide patient disposition. We aimed to evaluate whether modifying the TIMI risk score to give greater weighting to ischaemic ECG changes and troponin elevations would enhance its risk stratification and thus potentially facilitate safe patient discharge after 12-h troponin… CONTINUE READING
