OBJECTIVES The study objective was to validate a new high-sensitivity troponin I (hs-TnI) assay in a clinical protocol for assessing patients who present to the emergency department with chest pain. BACKGROUND Protocols using sensitive troponin assays can accelerate the rule out of acute myocardial infarction in patients with low-risk (suspected) acute coronary syndrome (ACS). METHODS This study evaluated 2 prospective cohorts of patients in the emergency department with ACS in an… CONTINUE READING
