Low hs-Troponin Predictive of Low Risk for Cardiac Events

Low HS-troponin I accurate in identifying patients at low risk of cardiac events

Clinical Question:
Is high-sensitivity troponin I accurate in identifying patients with suspected acute coronary syndromes who are at low risk of cardiac events?

Bottom Line:
The high-sensitivity troponin I used in this study was fairly accurate in identifying patients with chest pain who are at low risk for cardiac events. (LOE = 1c-)
