A 64-year-old man presented to the Emergency Department with epigastric pain and vomiting. He does not have fever, and he is haemodynamically stable with good saturation on room air. The CT abdomen evidences gallstone pancreatitis. However, on arrival to the ward, the nurse finds an ECG that the surgical team has not looked at (image below), with a Troponin result of 18. Which of the following options is/are CORRECT in the management of this patient?:
a) Call "Cardiac Arrest" for help: TRUE/FALSE.
b) Repeat ECG: TRUE/FALSE.
c) Start ACS (Acute Coronary Syndrome) treatment with aspirin, clopidogrel and atorvastatin: TRUE/FALSE.
d) T wave inversion can be seen in Pancreatitis and a negative troponin rules out ACS: TRUE/FALSE.
