|Emergency Cardiology Symposium||"Low-Risk Chest Pain" is one of the great misnomers in medicine. On the contrary, patients that are generally considered "low-risk" frequently turn out to be suffering from high-risk conditions, especially acute coronary syndrome (ACS). These cases of ACS, despite being considered by the clinician initially to be "low-risk," have a high mortality when discharged home and they constitute one of the highest sources of medicolegal payout in our specialty. Join us as we host some of the leading researchers in the world as they convene on our campus to discuss their research, their recommendations, and their protocols for managing these patients in the emergency department.||No||Course Website||
