For chest pain patients, waiting even minutes in the emergency department can feel like an eternity. Clinicians need tools to help manage these patients, while improving clinical and operational outcomes. Those tools must be expertly designed, research proven diagnostic solutions, capable of meeting clinical performance demands that are continuously evolving.
Having a high-sensitivity troponin I assay that delivers actionable results in minutes can help clinicians manage chest pain patients with increased speed, insight and confidence:
Fully comprehensive cardiac test menu
High-sensitivity Troponin I, BNP and NT-proBNP* with results in minutes
Siemens Healthineers is proud to offer high-sensitivity troponin I across multiple systems, including the Atellica® IM Analyzer, ADVIA Centaur® System, Dimension® EXL™ Integrated Systems, and Dimension Vista® Intelligent Lab Systems.
*NT-proBNP not available for sale in the U.S.
The products/features (mentioned herein) are not commercially available in all countries. Their future availability cannot be guaranteed.
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
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, including sex-specific cutoffs, serial testing, 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.
Collaboration Between Laboratory and Clinical Practice*
We are pleased to offer an exciting opportunity to hear from two globally recognized cardiac key opinion leaders, Professor Fred Apple and Professor Nicholas Mills as they discuss fast protocol strategies and evidence-based literature that supports implementation of high-sensitivity troponin testing in clinical practice. In addition, a thorough review of the controversial 2020 ESC NSTEMI guidelines and the NICE guidelines are provided.
