Subject:        Measure troponin in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome

 

 

Request:

I wanted to make a freedom of information request to your organisation. My enquiry is what point of care test is used in your trust to measure troponin in patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome? Primarily whether you use a point of care test in A+E and what point of care test is used, such as if it is a high sensitivity troponin or one of the earlier point of care assays.

 

 

Response:

We do not use point of care testing in A+E.
