Rational use of troponin and optimal management of cardiovascular diseases


  • The guidelines recommend to use the 0 h/1 h or 0 h/2 h rapid algorithm for patient stratification and rapid triage.
  • Hs-TnT has been demonstrated by many studies to have a very good diagnostic value, rule-in efficiency and safety for rule-out diagnosis.
  • If high-sensitivity troponin tests turn around time can be reduced to within 20 minutes through process optimization it will benefit the chest pain center as well as patients.

Prof Yao ChenLing shares how she continuously pushes boundaries to improve patient outcomes through clinician and laboratory collaboration to implement rapid diagnosis for acute chest pain in the Emergency Department (ED).
