STUDY OBJECTIVE We assess the performance of a single multimarker strategy, using a combination of sensitive troponin I-Ultra and copeptin assays to rule out non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction (NSTEMI) at presentation to an emergency department (ED). METHODS A secondary analysis was carried out on 587 consecutive patients with chest pain who presented to the ED without ST elevation on ECG and were included in a single-site, prospective observational study. Samples for copeptin and… CONTINUE READING
