ABSTRACT
The article discusses use of high sensitivity cardiac troponin assays for acute myocardial infarction (AMI) diagnosis in patients suffering from chest pain. It mentions how use of electrocardiography (ECG) in AMi diagnosis requires application of cardiac biomarkers due to its low sensitivity. It cites necessity of clear guidance in performing troponin assays due to its potential to increase certain myocardial injury-related conditions. Brief details about troponin sampling are also presented.
