When confronted with chest pain, one should above all consider unstable infarction or unstable angina pectoris, because these events necessitate immediate hospitalization in view of intravenous thrombolysis. In this article, published works on estimates for the probability of acute myocardial infarction based on history and ECG are summarized. The different decision-making processes practitioners may become confronted with as well as some diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations are introduced.
