  • The score has been derived and validated in an ED population and predicts 6 week adverse cardiac events[1][2]
  • Low risk patients have a score 0-3 and have a less than 2% risk of MACE at 6 weeks.

  • 0-3: 2.5% risk of adverse cardiac event. Patient's can be discharged with follow-up.
  • 4-6: 20.3% risk of adverse cardiac event. Patients should be admitted to the hospital for trending of troponin and provocative testing.
  • ≥7: 72.7% risk of adverse cardiac event, suggesting early invasive measures with these patients and close coordination with inpatient cardiology
