Abstract

Unstable angina is a classification of acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Indeed, ACS spans the spectrum of unstable angina, non-ST segment myocardial infarction, and ST segment elevation myocardial infarction. Millions of Americans present to medical care professionals with unstable angina. While the disease process and treatment varies with ACS presentation and degree of injury, there are certain characteristics that are common to each clinical scenario. A through history and physical examination, diagnostics including electrocardiogram, and biochemical markers help to establish the diagnosis and degree of ACS. By determining the extent of injury to a patient, physicians are able to guide appropriate treatment goals based on risk/benefit ratio. Medical treatment includes anti-ischemic, antiplatelet, antianginal, and statin therapies. Finally, invasive measures including revascularization plays a prominent role in treating unstable angina. Beyond revascularization, cardiac rehabilitation is increasingly recognized in treating patients who present with unstable angina.
