Clinical Trial Summary

Decision aids such as the HEART Pathway, Emergency Department Assessment of Chest Pain Score (EDACS), Revised Geneva Score and PERC Score have similar ability to accurately risk stratify Emergency Department (ED) patients with possible Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) and Pulmonary Embolism (PE) and have become standard practice in the ED setting. This study seeks to determine whether prehospital use of these decision aids is feasible and determine which are the most sensitive and specific for prediction of ACS and PE, respectively.


Clinical Trial Description

To accomplish our Specific Aims the study team proposes a prospective, observational pilot study of four rapid risk stratification tools, the HEART Pathway Score, EDACS score, revised Geneva score, and PERC score, among 250 chest pain patients within two large EMS systems. The proposed pilot study has broad-based support from local and state EMS agencies, including Cumberland and New Hanover County EMS agencies. Each tool will be pilot tested and compared in the prehospital setting for feasibility and accuracy. Paramedics will be trained in risk stratification tool use and then will prospectively collect the clinical data needed to calculate each risk stratification score when caring for adults with chest pain. Completed paramedic risk assessments will be used to determine feasibility. Patients will be followed for 30 days to determine occurrence of ACS and PE events and the sensitivity of each risk stratification decision aid will be determined.
