Cardiac Emergencies & Heart Failure: The Beat Must Go On

This complaint of chest pain in the adult patient population typically is an indication of an ischemic event related to coronary arterial disease.

Using a case study approach, the complaint of chest pain and difficulty breathing will be examined.

Pathophysiology, assessment findings, pharmacology and treatment options related to several cardiac related diagnoses will be reviewed.
