Abstract

BACKGROUND: Many patients presenting to the emergency department (ED) for assessment of possible acute coronary syndrome (ACS) have low cardiac troponin concentrations that change very little on repeat blood draw. It is unclear if a lack of change in cardiac troponin concentration can be used to identify acutely presenting patients at low risk of ACS. METHODS: We used the hs-cTnI assay from Abbott Diagnostics, which can detect cTnI in the blood of nearly all people. We identified a population of ED patients being assessed for ACS with repeat cTnI measurement who ultimately were proven to have no acute cardiac disease at the time of presentation. We used data from the repeat sampling to calculate total within-person CV (CVT) and, knowing the assay analytical CV (CV A), we could calculate within-person biological variation (CV i), reference change values (RCVs), and absolute RCV delta cTnI concentrations. RESULTS: We had data sets on 283 patients. Men and women had similar CVi values of approximately 14%, which was similar at all concentrations
