TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center utilizes an innovative new approach that can help detect a heart attack earlier and more precisely than traditional tests called high-sensitivity cardiac troponin. This new test allows providers to measure the presence of a heart-specific protein called troponins more quickly and assess heart attacks earlier when treatment options are more favorable. Troponins are proteins that help muscles contract and are released into the blood when cardiac cells die. A high-sensitivity cardiac troponin test expedites the evaluation of patients who may be experiencing an acute coronary syndrome (ACS), or a heart attack.
