Accelerated strategies in the assessment of emergency patients with possible acute coronary syndromes

Cullen, Louise A. (2015) Accelerated strategies in the assessment of emergency patients with possible acute coronary syndromes. PhD by Publication, Queensland University of Technology.


This thesis synthesises advancements made in the method of assessment of emergency patients with possible acute cardiac disease and has defined new assessment strategies that supports the safe early discharge of patients at low risk for acute coronary syndromes. These important findings have informed clinicians and health services about improvements that can be made at this current time in the process of care of ED patients, and the studies have had local, national and international influence.
