In brief: No
Troponin levels should only be elevated in patients with heart muscle damage through one mechanism or another. As salmonella is not normally an offending agent to the heart muscle, it is unlikely that it would raise troponin levels.
However, if the person is septic, hypotensive, and in renal failure, the combination can lead to mild elevations of troponin.
