DESCRIPTION

Is your lab ready to implement high-sensitivity troponin I testing? The Fourth Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction recommends high-sensitivity troponin assays for routine clinical use. Compared to standard (guideline-acceptable) cardiac troponin assays, high-sensitivity troponin assays offer improved sensitivity and unparalleled precision at the low end of the measuring range. With the availability of high-sensitivity troponin I assays in the U.S., more laboratories now have the opportunity to implement these assays in clinical practice. Join Dr. Allan Jaffe, a highly regarded researcher and advisor on using and interpreting troponin I results, to learn about the latest recommendations and communications labs need to have with key clinical partners when they transition to high-sensitivity troponin assays.

What you will learn

  • The latest recommendations for the Fourth Universal Definition of Myocardial Infarction

  • How to discriminate myocardial infarction from myocardial injury when troponin values are elevated

  • Common questions to expect from your clinical stakeholders and how to proactively collaborate
