Rapid ACS Rule Out in Emergency Patients


  • hs-cTn used in conjunction with the rapid 0/1hr ESC algorithm has robust RWE to support its use.
  • Current 2020 ESC guidelines have elevated the 0/1hr algorithm using hs-cTn above the 0/3hr algorithm.
  • There are ongoing efforts to simplify the process of triage of suspected ACS patients in the ED with new digital tools such as AI based decision support.

Dr Cynthia Papendick shares her experience using hs-cTn 0/1hr ESC algorithm in her South Australia Hospital ED for faster rule-out of patients suspected with Acute Coronary Syndrome.
