Motivation: Case Scenario correlating increased Troponin measurements with Acute Coronary Syndrome

“Case Presentation: J.P. is an obese 55-year-old male with a history of gastroesophageal reflux disease who presents to the emergency department with substernal chest pain that he attributes to a “large meal.” J.P. is pale and diaphoretic. An ECG shows tachycardia with normal sinus rhythm. J.P.’s troponin levels (decision limit >0.04 μg/L) at presentation and at 6 and 12 hours after presentation are 0.09, 4.41, and 19.62 μg/L, respectively.” http://www.circ.ahajournals.org/content/116/18/e501.full

“J.P.’s presentation and troponin results are consistent with the diagnosis of ACS (Figure 1A). An additional cTnI measurement, 48 hours after admission, revealed a downward trend in his troponin level. Because of the improved sensitivity and precision at low cTnI concentrations, the initial cTnI result indicated myocardial injury and the subsequent diagnosis of ACS.” Image:Heart1.png
