I am posting this here on his blog in the hopes that it will remain online a little longer than the 30 days that the paper allows. Just in case anyone missed it in the Tribune.

Chest pain is considered a chief symptom of heart related problems. It can occur due to various causes such as heart attack, pulmonary embolism, thoracic aortic dissection, oesophageal rupture, tension pneumothorax and cardiac tamponade.

By conducting several medical tests, the above causes could be ruled out or treated as recommended by medical professionals. If acute chest pain occurs, the patient should be admitted immediately for observation and sequential E.C.G.'s are followed up.

Just like in all medical cases, a careful medical history and detailed physical examination is essential in separating dangerous from minor/trivial causes of disease. Sometimes, there is need of rapid diagnosis to save life of patient. A deep study of recent health changes, family history, tobacco consumption, smoking, diabetes, eating disorders, etc. is useful in treatment of chest pain.

Features of chest pain could be generalised as heaviness; radiation of the pain to neck, jaw or left arm; sweating; nausea; palpitations; pain coming from exertion; dizziness; shortness of breath and a sense of impending doom. On the basis of these characteristics, a number of tests can be carried out for proper treatment. X-ray and CT scan of the chest help in determining the basic cause of pain. An electrocardiogram helps in detailed study of the problem.
