The time interval between troponin elevation and death potentially allows physicians to modify prognosis,” they concluded. ... is unlikely that patients actually will benefit from routine troponin measurement after noncardiac surgery.
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

Higher-intensity care setting may not be associated with early survival in acute heart failure patients
The same respiratory variables were also associated with ward admission versus ED discharge, as were the additional factors of elevated leukocyte count, abnormal troponin level, and higher heart rate.
