Comments:Help on this term

This identifies whether the person experiencing acute coronary syndrome (ACS) symptoms is doing so due to another condition or event and where the treatment would be primarily targeted at managing that condition.

The presence of one of these conditions or events has a significant impact on the appropriate treatment modalities for ACS. Therefore, the person's treatment may be different from those recommended for ACS.
