When ruling out a potential myocardial infarction (MI), every minute spent waiting on test results comes at a cost. Patients and their families are anxious, and clinicians and laboratory professionals are pressured to identify the problem quickly and accurately. Increased time to results adds congestion to an already busy emergency department. But what if ED staff had access to high-sensitivity troponin right at the point of care?
The Siemens Healthineers Atellica® VTLi Patient-side Immunoassay Analyzer using the Atellica VTLi hs-cTnI Reagent Cartridge has been shown to provide robust sensitivity, specificity, and negative predictive values when compared to clinically adjudicated diagnosis of MI.
