How Precise is Your Troponin?
Sensitivity and precision at the low end of the measuring range provides the ability to measure slight, yet critical, changes between serial troponin I values
Recent Studies Demonstrate Performance of High-sensitivity Troponin I Assay
Over the past 20 years the analytical sensitivity and precision of cardiac troponin (cTn) assays have improved for very low cTn concentrations. Compared to traditional cTn assays, high-sensitivity troponin I (hs-cTnI) assays can detect lower levels of troponin and smaller changes to a patient’s troponin levels, which may be an early indication of AMI.
A new literature compendium features recent articles offering guidance on the use of hs-cTnI assays, with respect to assay type (POC vs. central lab), sex-specific cutoffs, serial testing, single-test rule-out, and reporting units.
These studies show that the Siemens Healthineers high-sensitivity troponin I assays are proven, true high-sensitivity cardiac troponin I assays that provide fast, accurate, and actionable test results.

Outpatient Versus Observation/Inpatient Management of Emergency Department Patients Rapidly Ruled-out for Acute Myocardial Infarction: Findings from the HIGH-US Study5
A recent study described the clinical characteristics of acute myocardial infarction (AMI) ruled-out patients placed in observation/inpatient beds (OBS/ADM) vs. those with an ED discharge (EDD) using the HIGH-US 0/1 hour (h) study algorithm, and the cardiac testing and interventions that were completed in the group placed in OBS/ADM.
For patients at very low risk for AMI within 30 days, those with a history of coronary artery disease (CAD), stroke, hypertension, or having an abnormal ECG, or a family history of CAD were more likely placed in OBS/ADM than EDD. Decisions to admit or place patients in observation could be reduced based on the prognosis for these patients and the 0/1 h rapid algorithm. This would lead to shorter lengths of hospital stay and fewer patients receiving further unnecessary cardiac procedures.
The observational findings from the HIGH-US multicenter study suggest that most patients presenting to the ED with symptoms suspicious for AMI but meeting the rapid rule-out AMI criteria using a hs-cTnI 0/1-hour algorithm might be managed as outpatients.
