84-93. E.M.S. went to bed about 11 PM after a busy evening of entertaining friends and family. He
was awakened at 2 AM with chest pain that radiated to his left shoulder, arm and fingers. His son took
him to the emergency room, where he was immediately given oxygen by mask and nitroglycerin. His
chest pain was relieved in about 39 minutes. An ECG revealed evidence of myocardial ischemia but no
evidence of a myocardial infarction. He was admitted to the cardiac intensive unit for further
evaluation.
1. What’s the most likely cause of the pain (what’s the name of the condition and what causes
it)?
2. What kind of medication is nitroglycerin and why does it help to relieve the pain? What are
other treatment options for this condition?
