  • He presented to the Emergency Room with sudden onset of severe chest pain. An ECG was performed at 2 hours after the onset of symptom.[eplabdigest.com]
  • As a result, prolonged chest pain without diagnostic ECG changes should always prompt a careful search for noncoronary causes of chest pain.[angelfire.com]
