The trial included 400 consecutive patients without known coronary artery disease and a negative initial serum troponin level. ... The study hospital did not have access to high-sensitivity troponin testing, which would have reduced the number of
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
The patient reported worsening dyspnea, and his electrocardiogram, troponin, and echocardiogram were concerning for a type 1 MI, so a cardiologist was consulted.
Among those 697 patients with elevated biomarker or enzyme levels, 360 had elevated troponin levels and 337 had elevated creatine kinase-MB levels. ... Also, since most patients who have a perioperative MI won't have ischemic symptoms, perioperative
There was no asymmetry, edema, or rash on his extremities. Laboratory tests showed leukocytosis, mild elevation of aminotransferase levels, and a troponin I level of 3.05 ng/mL (reference range,
Finally, the guideline concludes with advice on surveillance for perioperative myocardial infarction, recommending troponin measurement and electrocardiogram if a patient has signs or symptoms suggestive of myocardial ischemia or infarction.
While unrelated to VBP, specific documentation of NSTEMI for patients with acute coronary syndrome and elevated troponin levels is also essential for correct DRG assignment and hospital reimbursement when the aggressive
pro B-type natriuretic peptide level, potassium level, troponin level, New York Heart Association class at admission, respiratory rate, low-output symptoms, oxygen saturation, episode association with acute coronary syndrome, hypertrophy
Very old patients undergoing hip fracture surgery should have troponin levels measured in the postoperative period, as there is a high incidence of perioperative myocardial infarction (PMI) and the symptoms are ... Creatine kinase-MB fraction was used
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.
