Finally, it is important to differentiate unstable angina (indicating an acute coronary syndrome or even myocardial infarction requiring urgent treatment) from stable angina. Unstable angina typically is severe, occurs without typical provocation and does not disappear with rest, and has a longer duration than stable angina. It is important to initiate prompt treatment in these patients, as described in the acute coronary syndromes chapter.
