That is an excellent point to make and very valid. Sometimes its hard for patients to differentiate between chest pains and acid reflux. I've see patients who would treat with antacids over night only to show up in the ER the next day.
Thank you. My previous profession was critical care nursing and I volunteered as a CPR and first aid instructor for about 20 years. Inferior wall myocardial infarction (heart attack) is often characterized by "indigestion."
I am more of an internal medicine kind of guy. I don't mind ICU, MICU, or CSICU. But I feel more at home on the general floor. Send me a message of your experiences! I would be glad to hear them.
