Dr Scheuermeyer and the reasearch group have recently published the validation of our beloved Chest Pain Pathway, in the Annals of Emergency Medicine.
This paper has the potential to change practice in EDs around the world, though as Dr Scheuermeyer can attest, there is significant resistance to the ideas presented in the paper especially with our American colleagues.
This paper has already been integrated into some high profile medical sites, being referenced in the Medscape Acute Coronary Syndrome article; is featured in Journal Watch; and garners a review by Ryan Radecki of the excellent EM Lit of Note Blog (follow on the blog and on Twitter – highly recommended). NEW – A new review on the EM Ireland Blog (another great blog – Andy is also doing a great series on Anatomy for EM (iTunes Link). Blog here and Twitter here)
