February is American Heart Month

February is American Heart Month, a time to focus on our cardiovascular health and appreciate the incredible advancements in cardiac-related patient care.prevention

In 1999, Troponin became the preferred biomarker for myocardial infarction. Next-generation high-sensitivity troponin tests were introduced to the U.S. market in 2017, resulting in advancements in the speed and precision of patient results. 

High-sensitivity troponin cardiac tests allow for lower level detection of Troponinhelping to detect even minute heart injuries more quickly and accurately. A negative test can also rule out heart damage from coronary heart disease.

The speed and accuracy of diagnostics have a critical impact on patient outcome and cost of care. Thanks to these next-generation high-sensitivity troponins, clinicians are now able to diagnose or exclude a heart attack in just 1 hour, compared to older assay techniques which take more than 12 hours.1
