Assessment of the utility of ordering a troponin in low- and intermediate-risk patients presenting to the emergency department with supraventricular tachycardia: A retrospective chart review

from The Journal of Emergency Medicine

A troponin assay is commonly sent for patients presenting to emergency departments (EDs) with supraventricular tachycardia (SVT). Multiple studies suggest that elevated troponin levels do not predict coronary artery disease in these patients. Patients with elevated troponins are more likely to have additional cardiac testing, which can lead to increased health care costs and unnecessary invasive procedures. more
