Laboratory Findings

Electrolyte and Biomarker Studies

If there is an elevation of a marker of myocardial necrosis (CK-MB or troponin), then the patient does not have unstable angina, but instead has a syndrome of either ST elevation MI or Non ST elevation MI depending upon the EKG changes.

Electrocardiogram

ST Depression in a pt. with unstable angina

The resting electrocardiogram may show either

  1. No changes
  2. Flipped T waves
  3. ST Depression as shown to the right. ST depression carries the poorest prognosis.

Chest X Ray

A Chest X Ray is critical to aid in the exclusion of aortic dissection.

A mediastinal mass consistent with a cancer may be present, but it is unlikely to present with a syndrome of accelerating chest pain.
