Abstract

Objectives: The objective of the study is to assess patients with chest pain in ER with the perspective of classifying them according to emergency severity index (ESI) and understanding the outcomes and various parameters according to ESI. Materials and methods: This study is a longitudinal observational study. Collection of data for 100 patients was done. Compilation of data and their statistical analysis were performed. Results: Gender is significantly associated with ESI (p-value = 0.020). Patients with ESI-III category had significantly lower age than the patients with ESI-I and II categories. There was no association of ESI category with hypertension, diabetes mellitus, IHD, and COPD. Smoking history was significantly associated with the ESI category. Exercise and vegetarian habits were not associated with ESI. Conclusion: Gender exhibited a significant association with ESI classification, revealing gender-related differences in severity distribution. This is a first of its kind study done where patients with chest pain are seen from the ESI point of view. We urge other centres to perform this study so that a wider consensus can be reached.
