Usefulness of a 2-hour Delta Troponin-I During the ED Identification and Exclusion of Acute Myocardial Infarction
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Condition||acute coronary syndrome|
|Sponsor||Chattanooga-Hamilton County Hospital Authority|
|Start date||January 2014|
|End date||December 2014|
|Trial size||1000 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT02002546, IRB# 13-069|
1. In chest pain patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome, a 2-hr delta Troponin-I as measured by the i-STAT immunoassay reliably identifies and excludes an acute myocardial infarction.
2. In chest pain patients with suspected acute coronary syndrome whose baseline troponin is above the 99th percentile but less than 0.2ng/ml, a 2hr delta Troponin-I as measured by the i-STAT immunoassay accurately discriminates between acute myocardial infarction and non-acute myocardial infarction troponin elevations.
Change in Troponin value over a two hour interval.
time frame: 2 hours after baseline
Male or female participants at least 18 years old.
- Adult patients 18 years of age or older
- Chest pain suspicious for ACS
- Absence of ST-segment elevation AMI (STEMI) or STEMI equivalent on the initial ECG
- Baseline i-STAT troponin less or equal to 1.0 ng/ml
- Enrollment initiated before 2 hour 'delt' troponin value available for review
- Ability and willingness to participate and cooperate with telephone follow-up evaluations
- ST-elevation or other ECG criteria that results in the diagnosis of AMI and results in patient being sent for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) or being treated with thrombolytics
- Patients with chest pain not deemed to warrant cardiac screening
- Blunt chest trauma
- Tachyarrhythmia (ventricular tachycardia, supraventricular tachycardia, or rapid atrial fibrillation)
- Cardiac Arrest prior to arrival
- Hemodynamically unstable patients
- Pulmonary edema requiring CPAP, BIPAP, or mechanical ventilation
- Baseline i-STAT troponin measurement greater than 1.0 ng/ml
- Baseline and 2-hour i-STAT Troponin measurements not obtained
- Patient (or Legal Representative) unable or unwilling to provide written informed consent
- Subject unwilling or unlikely to comply with study procedures, including protocol-specific blood sampling
- Subject unwilling, unable, or deemed unlikely to respond or participate in telephone follow-up
- Vulnerable populations as deemed inappropriate for the study
|Official title||Usefulness of a 2-hour Delta Troponin-I During the ED Identification and Exclusion of Acute Myocardial Infarction|
|Description||Primary Aims: 1) Demonstrate that a 2hr delta troponin as measured by the i-STAT platform can reliably identify and exclude MI on the initial ED evaluation. 2)Demonstrate that a 2hr delta troponin is useful in the discrimination AMI versus non-AMI conditions in patients with low abnormal baseline Troponin-I values. Secondary Aims: 1) Demonstrate that a positive 2-hr delta troponin-I identifies patients at highest risk for 30 day ACE. 2) Other Secondary aims TBD.|
