Overview

Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is among the leading causes of death worldwide and occurs during an acute obstruction of blood flow to the heart. The goal of this learning activity is to provide doctors with a comprehensive review of AMI and the role of cardiac biomarkers, specifically high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) assays in diagnosing AMI. Upon completing this module, participants will have a better understanding of the following aspects:

• Clinical presentation and classification of AMI

• Cardiac biomarkers in AMI

• The role of hs-cTn assays in diagnosis

• Rapid ‘rule-in’ and ‘rule-out’ with hs-cTn assays
