HEART and High Sensitivity Troponin

Combining a Δ1h high-sensitivity troponin (hsTn) with the HEART score in a diagnostic algorithm helped decrease admission rates (59% to 33%) and median health-care costs ($1,748 to $1,079) with no significant difference in clinical outcomes. It is important to realize that this study was not randomized and was underpowered to detect differences in clinical outcome.
