In emergency medicine, we are generally very good about evaluating chest pain. We also are familiar with procedures including coronary artery bypass grafts (CABG). However, in patients with recent CABG, there are some key reminders we need with this patient population.
These pearls come from a recent paper by Gimpel et al. published by The BMJ titled "Primary care management of chest pain after coronary artery bypass surgery" which was released earlier this year. As the title suggests, this was originally designed for those in primary care but this paper has pearls we all can benefit from when taking care of these patients.
