Current situation

According to the statistics from the Department of Health, there were 10.6 cases of death resulted from coronary heart disease daily in 2017. Between 2008 and 2017, over 30,000 patients died because of coronary heart disease. Despite that the symptom of chest pain is common, sudden death caused by coronary heart disease often does not show many symptoms. In light of this, our hospital’s Rapid Access Chest Pain Clinic is dedicated to help provide a one-stop solution to acute cardiac problems.

  • DTWC (Diagnosis to Wire Crossing Time): Front-line staff that makes the first point of contact with the patient will confirm the possibility of cardiac infarction within 10 minutes, thereby increasing the doctor’s accuracy and efficiency in determining the appropriate treatment plan. In this manner, they will maximize the 90-minute recovery window, improve the success rate, and greatly reduce damage to the heart or any subsequent risks.

Symptoms

Different people may have different sensations when it comes to chest pain. It all depends on what’s triggering the symptom. If you experience new or unexplainable chest pain or you suspect that you are having a heart attack, seek emergency medical help immediately.

 

Heart-related chest pain

Despite that chest pain is often associated with heart disease, many patients with heart disorders describe their chest pain experience as a vague discomfort that isn’t necessarily classified as pain. Generally speaking, heart-related chest discomfort may be associated with one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Chest pressure, fullness or tightness
  • Burning or searing back, neck, shoulder or arm pain
  • Pain with irregularity – lasts for a few minutes, worsens with activity, or varies in intensity
  • Shortness of breath
  • Cold sweats
  • Dizziness or weakness
  • Nausea or vomiting


Other types of chest pain

It may be difficult to tell heart-related chest pain apart from other types of chest pain, but having the following symptoms are signs that the chest pain is not associated with heart problems:

  • Difficulty swallowing
  • A sour or acidic taste in mouth
  • Pain that gets better or worse depending on your body position
  • Pain that gets worse when you breathe deeply or cough
  • Tenderness when you push on your chest
  • Pain that lasts for hours

Heartburn is known for its classic symptom of painful, burning sensation behind the breastbone. This symptom can in fact be caused by the heart or the stomach.
