BACKGROUND The management of patients with acute coronary syndromes without ST-segment elevation (NSTEACS) in a chest pain unit (CPU) should represent a cost-effective advantage over conventional management in a coronary care unit (CCU). However, the safety and advantages of this approach are still unresolved. MATERIAL/METHODS Outcomes and management costs were evaluated in patients with NSTEACS with intermediate-high TIMI risk scores (> or =3) randomized to receive management in a CPU or a… CONTINUE READING
