When a new guideline is released, there are often unanswered questions about its practical application. It’s not uncommon for it to take years for new guidelines to become widely adopted in practice.

However, this recent collaboration among the American College of Cardiology (ACC), the American Heart Association (AHA), and other critical groups (ASE/CHEST/SAEM /SCCT/SCMR) aim to drive real change in physicians’ practice.

This team, led by Writing Committee Chair Dr. Martha Gulati, produced a clear set of guidelines for the evaluation and diagnosis of adult patients who present with chest pain. Get the inside perspective from the writing committee and learn about the final decisions that were put into the guideline.

“As common as the evaluation of chest pain is (it’s something that we all do so much in this country and in our centers) it’s not straightforward. If this was a simple thing, we probably wouldn’t need to have a guideline and we certainly wouldn’t need to have a very long one. But the reality is, as common as this is, it’s a complex thing.”
