Are there nursing interventions of chest pain?

Several

Chest_pain
The nurse would ask questions about the pain such as where it is and how severe, measure vital signs such as blood pressure and pulse, and then notify the doctor. Depending on the assessment, the nurse might then give medication such as nitroglycerine or perform tests like an EKG. The nurse then would follow up to see if the pain improved. Wow, I could be a nurse, I think!

Chest pain. Dull but painful. 23 year old female. High triglycerides. 303 last check up. Could that be causing it?

Doubt it's heart

Chest_tightness
Though triglycerides are high it is still very unlikely that its your heart. Heart attacks in 23 y/o very very unlikely. However it is obviously concerning you. You should see your doctor and get it looked into. It could be musculoskeletal, reflux, gallbladder, or several other things.

Costochondritis

Chest_pain
It sounds like you're describing costochondritis or Tietze's syndrome. It's a form of rheumatism. See: http://www.nhs.uk/conditions/Tietzes-syndrome/Pages/Introduction.aspx
