COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwire - August 10, 2009) - The Society of Chest Pain Centers (www.SCPCP.org), an international non-profit focused on improving care for cardiac patients, has announced the publication of a book edited by Dr. W.

The book titled, "Short Stay Management of Chest Pain," provides scientific and clinical insights on management of patients with chest pain.

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) continues to challenge our health care system in the complexity of presentation and the ever increasing number of patients exhibiting signs and symptoms of an acute coronary syndrome.

Written by leading experts, "Short Stay Management of Chest Pain" provides scientific and clinical insights on the management of patients who arrive at the hospital with a presentation consistent with a potential acute coronary syndrome. Focusing on the cardiology aspects of chest pain, "Short Stay Management of Chest Pain" is a valuable tool for acute care physicians, nurses, and hospital administrators devoted to caring for this population. "Short Stay Management of Chest Pain" details the remarkable improvements in diagnostic accuracy and improved patient outcomes for patients presenting with suspected acute coronary syndromes.

"For a state of the art road map to provide the most efficient care and best outcomes for patients presenting with suspected acute coronary syndromes, this book has no equal," noted Dr. Peacock.

For a limited time, the book will be sold at a discount off of the retail price on the Society of Chest Pain Center's website at http://tinyurl.com/http-scpcp-org-store.
