Most of the data were also gathered before high-sensitivity troponin assays became standard.
Researchers identified 21,668 inpatients in the Veterans Affairs central databases in 2006 who had elevated troponin levels and were eventually discharged from the hospital. ... There was also some variability in troponin assays at some medical centers
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 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
sensitivity troponin-T level above 14 pg/mL, and an N-terminal pro B-type natriuretic peptide level above 125 pg/mL. ... In addition, they pointed out that potential cost savings are uncertain because of the higher laboratory costs involved in ordering
evaluation. Oxygen saturation is 98% on ambient air. Serum cardiac troponin and myoglobin levels are normal. ... Correct answer: B. Captopril and carvedilol. This patient has acute myocarditis, manifesting with flu-like systemic symptoms, chest pain,
biomarker(s) such as troponin I, troponin T or CK-MB (creatine kinase muscle or brain type). ... The diagnosis of “demand ischemia” is sometimes used when patients experience release of cardiac biomarkers, like troponin.
Recent research has shown that elevated troponin levels are associated with worse outcomes. ... Studies of patients with gastrointestinal bleeds and respiratory disease have found that patients with elevated troponin have higher mortality years after
Mr. Jackson had chest pain and an elevated troponin. Dr. Smith was convinced it was unstable angina and possibly an infarct with an abnormal EKG. ... Then he went back upstairs and saw Mr. Jackson again. His repeat troponin was normal, as was his EKG.
The diagnosis of MI is based on detection of rise and/or fall of cardiac biomarkers (preferably troponin) with evidence of ischemia, defined as the following. ... For patients with normal baseline troponin after percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI),
