Clinical Performance of Elecsys Troponin T hs Gen 6 in Subjects with Symptoms of Acute Coronary Syndrome ??? PERFORM-TSIX Study
This study is being used to evaluate a new troponin blood test. Troponin blood tests are used in emergency departments as part of the diagnosis for heart attack. Patients presenting to the emergency department with chest pain or heart attack equivalent symptoms will be invited to participate. Blood draws will occur 5 times during the patient's emergency department visit. The results of the blood test will not be available to the treating provider, and will have no effect on patient care.
The primary objective of the study is to determine the clinical performance of Elecsys Troponin T hs Gen 6 versus the centrally adjudicated clinical diagnosis at various timepoints after ED presentation using the previously determined clinical cut-off of a universal 99th percentile upper reference limit.
Compensation may include cash, checks, gift cards, debit cards, or incentives like gift baskets, technology items, or merchandise.
