In brief: No-Now

Although chest pain may not be an emergency, there is no simple way an untrained person may be able to distinguish true cardiac originating chest pains which is a true medical emergency requiring going immediately to an emergency department from noncardiac origin chest pains which usually are not as urgent.
Even trained professionals may have difficulty distinguishing the cause and will need tests.
