A client with no history of cardiovascular disease comes into the ambulatory clinic with flu-like symptoms. The client suddenly complains of chest pain. Which of the following questions would best help a nurse to discriminate pain caused by a non-cardiac problem?
1. “Have you ever had this pain before?”
2. “Can you describe the pain to me?”
3. “Does the pain get worse when you breathe in?”
4. “Can you rate the pain on a scale of 1-10, with ten (10) being the worst?”
