Challenging Current Medical Misconceptions


Charles H., a 56 year old computer store manager, came to his local emergency room, complaining of vague chest discomfort present for about 4 h. Based on an absence of prior history of cardiovascular disease, a normal cardiovascular examination and electrocardiogram (ECG), and a failure to report any pain relief following the administration of sublingual nitroglycerin, the patient was discharged to home with a diagnosis of chest wall pain. He returned 6 h later with a massive myocardial infarction.
