Atypical symptom was defined as the absence of chest pain before or during admission, and may have included gastrointestinal or respiratory symptoms such as dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, and abdominal discomfort. Patients who present without chest pain are frequently misdiagnosed, and less likely to receive optimal treatment for ACS. Consequently, greater in-hospital morbidity, and mortality are noted. Therefore, understanding the factor associated with atypical presentations may help in the earlier detection and treatments in patients with ACS.
