Increased cv risk: Troponin i is a highly specific enzyme released by cardiac cells that, if elevated might suggest myocardial injury. It can be released in the setting of acute coronary occlusion (acs), but might be elevated also in cases of extreme demand (example sepsis, hypoxemia), or reduced clearance (renal insufficiency). In most settings an elevated troponin correlates with increased cv risk.

Normal finding: Troponin i is elevated due to injury to heart muscle and is used to help diagnose heart attacks as well as stratify risk in patients with chest pain. A low or unmeasurable troponin is a normal finding but does not guarantee a lack of heart issues.

When : When someone has a myocardial infarction or a heart attack, a cardiac specific protein called troponin is released into the blood stream. Troponin is released into the blood stream when there is cardiac tissue injury and the troponin levels in the blood can help to detect how severe the damage is. The higher the troponin level, the higher the extent of cardiac damage. A normal troponin level is >0.5 ng/ml.
