BACKGROUND Diagnostic performance of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) varies depending on presenting symptoms in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS We compared performance measures of hs-cTnT among patients admitted to the emergency department with typical chest pain (angina), dyspnea, and atypical symptoms and assessed outcomes by leading presenting symptoms. RESULTS A total of 658 patients suspected of ACS and presenting with typical chest pain (n… CONTINUE READING
