• The Emergency Department Assessment of Chest Pain (EDACS) identifies patients with chest pain that have a low risk of a major adverse cardiac event (MACE) [7].
  • It is used for patients with normal vital signs, chest pain consistent with ACS, and with pain that is no longer ongoing.
  • It considers Age, Sex, the presence of known coronary artery disease or more than 3 risk factors, and clinical presentation.
  • EDACS enables the identification of low risk patients for outpatient care or discharge.
  • Patients identified to not be at low risk are admitted and managed on conventional cardiac chest pain pathways [20].
