The Highs and Lows of Cardiac Troponin: What Your High Sensitivity Assay is Measuring and What Might it be Missing?

High sensitivity (hs) cardiac troponin assays have revolutionized care of patients with suspected myocardial infarction (MI), allowing for faster triage and more accurate diagnostic protocols. However, interpretation of cardiac troponin results requires consideration of patient and assay specific factors. 

This expert led session will cover analytical and clinical aspects across high and low hs-cardiac troponin results, while covering factors that may lead to potential misdiagnosis of MI.

After this workshop, attendees will be able to:

  1. Appreciate the importance of hs-cardiac troponin testing for routine clinical care.
  2. Recognize critical attributes that the laboratory should be aware of and communicate with physicians when test results do not match clinical presentation(s).  
  3. Describe trends within and/or across hs-cardiac troponin assays which may allow for early rule out and discharge, identify early patients with acute and chronic injury including type 1 and type 2 MI, while also avoiding unnecessary clinical investigations in non-MI patients.
