ABSTRACT
The article cites a research study on clinical risk score identification of high-risk patients with suspected acute coronary syndromes. However, the patients have no ST-segment deviation and normal troponin levels. The study found that the risk for death or myocardial infarction, at both 30 days and longer term, was lowest in the group with no ST-segment deviation and normal troponin levels that was categorized by the clinical risk score as low risk. The other groups did not differ.
