Explain the relationship of the p-value to the null hypothesis. The p-value also is related to the null hypothesis (the hypothesis of no difference).

Describe the classic pattern of chest pain in an MI. The pain is classically described as a crushing or pressure sensation; it is a poorly localized substernal pain that may radiate to the shoulder, arm, or jaw. The pain usually is not reproducible on palpation and in patients with a heart attack often does not resolve with nitroglycerin (as it often does in angina). The pain usually lasts at least half an hour. 5. What tests are used to diagnose an MI? Other than an EKG, the patient with a possible MI should have serial determinations of the MB fraction of creatine kinase (CK-MB), troponin I or T, or myoglobin (usually drawn every 8 hours 3 times before a heart attack is ruled out).

With large heart attacks that cause heart failure, look for bilateral pulmonary rales in the absence of other pneumonia-like symptoms, distended neck veins, S3 or S4 heart sound, new murmurs, hypotension, and/or shock. 7. What historical points should steer you toward a diagnosis of MI? Patients often have a history of angina or previous chest pain, murmurs, arrhythmias, risk factors for coronary artery disease, hypertension, or diabetes. They also may be taking digoxin, furosemide, cholesterol medications, anti-hypertensives, or other medications.
