Objectives: Many patients who have been discharged from the emergency department (ED) with a diagnosis of '' non- specific chest pain '' (NSCP) have anxiety disorder (AD), a commonly missed entity in acute care. The objective of this study was to delineate characteristic properties that could enhance recognition of AD in ED patients admitted with NSCP.
