This issue also includes an Expert Analysis offering advice on how to interpret cardiac troponin levels in patients with chronic kidney disease and suspected acute coronary syndrome.
A novel 1-hour algorithm to rule in or rule out acute myocardial infarction (MI) by incorporating high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T baseline values and changes may have substantially accelerated management, ... They had high-sensitivity cardiac
The tool is based on 13 independent risk factors, including systolic blood pressure, age, N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide level, potassium level, troponin level, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation. ... age, N-terminal pro B-type
Researchers studied 4,033 patients from 171 centers with NSTE ACS and elevated troponin levels.
The HEART score uses a patient's History, Electrocardiogram, Age, Risk factors, and initial Troponin to predict risk of major adverse cardiac events after an ED visit for chest pain. ... The HEART (History, Electrocardiogram, Age, Risk factors, and
Researchers compared the safety and efficacy of the ESC rule-out pathway (based exclusively on high-sensitivity cardiac troponin concentrations <99th percentile at presentation [16 ng/L for women and 34 ... ng/L for men], or at three hours if symptoms
ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction, creatinine clearance, and troponin ratio. ... segment elevation myocardial infarction, creatinine clearance, and troponin ratio.
In combination with age and history of bleeding, 3 biomarkers inform the ABC-bleeding score: growth differentiation factor-15 (GDF-15), cardiac troponin measured with high-sensitivity assays (cTn-hs), and
Eagle. “If you have a patient with atypical symptoms, a normal troponin, and a high d-dimer, I want you to focus on PE and dissection.
It is reasonable to observe patients with symptoms consistent with ACS without objective evidence of myocardial ischemia (nonischemic initial electrocardiogram and normal cardiac troponin) in a chest pain unit or telemetry ... unit with serial ECGs and
