Ep 167 - Troponin Update and LoDED Study Review with Rick Body

May 13, 2020

Over the last few years many of us in the UK have started to incorporate high-sensitivity troponin into the assessment of patients presenting with chest pain.

We have seen these samples taken at ever shorter intervals, aiming to discharge low risk patients safely, sooner from the Emergency Department (ED). This has been driven in part by the "Four Hour Emergency Access Target" as well as increased crowding in overwhelmed EDs.

In this podcast, internationally renowned researcher Prof Rick Body discusses the latest in troponin research and the recent LoDED study.
