- HEART score stands for:
- H – history, E – EKG changes, A – Age, R – risk factors, T – troponin elevation.
- Each of the categories is graded from 0-2.
- Total scores of 0-3 are low risk with approximately 2% risk of MACE at 6 weeks, and are generally considered safe for outpatient management. All other scores are high risk
- The HEART score is very easy to calculate.
