With i-STAT cardiac troponin I (cTnI), healthcare professionals can obtain quantitative measurement of cardiac troponin I (cTnI) in ten minutes without leaving the patient's side. By incorporating i-STAT cTnI early in the patient experience, measurements of cardiac troponin I can improve diagnosis and treatment of myocardial infarction (MI) and aid in the risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndromes (ACS) with respect to their relative risk of mortality.
Watch this short patient testimonial featuring George Hertner, MD, FACEM to see how process efficiencies achieved with i-STAT cTnI helped improve a particular patient’s care in his Emergency Department.
