Rapid Diagnostic Algorithm for Faster Diagnosis of Acute Coronary Syndromes

Dr. Rick Body, Professor of Emergency Medicine at the University of Manchester and Honorary Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, describes the development and implementation of a rapid diagnostic algorithm for acute coronary syndromes, the Troponin-only Manchester Acute Coronary Syndromes (T-MACS) decision aid, and how it is helping to reduce unnecessary hospitalization of low-risk patients. Hear how high-sensitivity troponin assays play a vital role in the method, enabling medical professionals to make faster decisions about patient care.
