Register now to save your spot and hear from experts as they discuss the latest research, techniques and technologies in their fields, from the use of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin in the emergency department and point-of-care blood gas testing to breath-based diagnostics, a new imaging data management platform and quality control practices in the clinical laboratory, and more.
POINT-OF-CARE: Is the effort really worth the result? hs-cTn at the point of care or lab?
This webinar will cover the utilization of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (cTn) in the emergency department (ED) and its impact when delivered via a rapid point-of-care (POC) device or core laboratory. In a moderated debate format, the case for using a point-of-care test to deliver high-sensitive cTn results will be presented, debating potential advantages in efficacious assessment of patients where myocardial infarction (MI) is part of the differential diagnosis.
