The study will collect basic information from your medical chart.
This includes: - clinical presentation (the symptoms you came to the ED with) - tests and procedures - diagnoses - the amount of time you stay in the ED and hospital
At 45 days and one year after your ED visit, we will look at your medical chart. We want to see if you have had hospital visits, tests, procedures, or diagnoses related to your heart. The study does NOT involve any special procedures, tests, or visits. Your personal health information will only be shared with members of the research team. Those who are required by law to review the quality and safety of this research may also see this information.
The study team will contact you via phone, email, or text approximately 45 days after your ED visit. They will contact you again at one year after your ED visit to see how you are doing. Each follow up contact will take approximately 5 minutes. It is possible that we may remove you from the study without asking you first. This may occur if the lab is unable to run both troponin tests from the blood drawn during your visit to the ED.
