Chest Pain Observation Unit (CPOU) - Cardiology


The objective of the Chest Pain Observation Unit is to provide efficient and quality care to the subgroup of patients presenting with chest pain who are deemed low to intermediate risk and do not have a clear cut acute coronary syndrome, or a clear non-cardiac cause for their chest pain. 

Patients appropriate for this unit are typically low to intermediate risk as determined by the Heart Score (< 7), normal troponins, no ischemic ECG changes, able to participate in testing, and without multiple comorbidities.


Having these patients geographically isolated to a single unit will allow for more streamlined evaluation and testing, reducing length of stay, maintaining good outcomes. The goal being to provide appropriate testing (may vary locally depending on available modalities) to risk stratify the patient, identify the higher risk patient who may benefit from an invasive coronary angiography strategy, versus the low risk patient who may be discharged with appropriate outpatient follow up.


Working on this 10-bed unit would prepare the nurse to learn skills needed to move to Echo Nursing or procedural departments such as Cath Lab and EP Lab.
