Diagnostic Accuracy of History and Physical Examination for Predicting Major Adverse Cardiac Events in Acute Chest Pain Patients

No clinical findings reliably ruled in 30-day Major Adverse Cardiac Events (MACE), whereas episodic chest pain lasting seconds and pain lasting more than 24 hours virtually ruled out 30-day MACE. Consequently, these two findings can be an important adjunct in ruling out 30-day MACE.
