POC troponin helps patients avoid unnecessary hospitalization

2 April 2024

Point-of-care (POC) high-sensitivity troponin tests could significantly aid in patient risk assessments, allowing clinicians to assess all available data during the patient encounter, facilitating single-sample rule-out and potentially avoiding unnecessary hospitalization. Professor Paul Collinson discusses the impact and requirements for POC high-sensitivity troponin to be integrated within the clinical care process and how successful implementation can improve healthcare.
