Low-Risk Chest Pain ADP SHOWDOWN (Using TIMI vs HEART): Part 2 of 3 – TIMI

Last week, REBEL EM’s Salim Rezaie went over his evidence-based approach to low-risk chest pain using the HEART score. This week, EMRAP’s Cameron Berg shows us how he does it, using the TIMI score.

Next week, Drs. Rezaie and Berg go head-to-head, comparing and contrasting their strategies and answer your questions, moderated by the one and only Rob Orman. This is where the meat is, so stay tuned!

If this is your cup of tea, wait until we kick off our big show coming up in May 10-12, 2016 at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Don’t miss one of your last chances to hear an EM legend live

From being a combat medic in the Vietnam War, to a technician, to a nurse, to a physician, Dr. Joe Lex has had a storied career in Emergency Medicine. After almost 50 years practicing, teaching and developing our specialty across the world, he will make his very last speaking appearance in North America at our 15th anniversary conference, before hanging up his stethoscope. Dr. Lex will be sharing insight into how far we’ve come as a specialty and where we are headed.

Perspectives like his are hard to find, so make sure to join us at the Essentials of Emergency Medicine conference from May 10-12, 2016 at The Chelsea theater of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.
