Normal Troponin Levels After Heart Attack
Myocardial Infarction means some of the heart muscle dies because of insufficient oxygen supply. Most often this occurs because the coronary artery is blocked by plaque & clot. Other causes include tears in the artery wall, extremely high oxygen demand (eg, rapid arrhythmia, heart valve disorder, or severe systemic illness.) Prompt treatment can minimize heart damage & ...Read more
Normal,then elevated: Cardiac markers including ckmb and troponins measure damage to the heart muscle which occurs in a heart attack - the damaged/dying muscle will leak these into the serum which can be measured as blood tests. They start off "negative" - in the reference range - and then 4-6 hrs after the start of the heart attack they begin to rise - will eventually peak and over several days return to normal. ...Read more
