|Genders Eligible for Study:
|Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Approximately 400 adults presenting to the ED with possible AMI will be enrolled.
- 18 years of age or older at time of enrollment
- Presenting to the ED within 6 hours from onset of chest discomfort (pain, pressure, tightness, etc) consistent with a possible diagnosis of AMI or ACS and with an initial ECG non-diagnostic for injury (or injury equivalent resulting in emergent reperfusion therapy). (NOTE: Subjects who have chest discomfort that is episodic or stuttering in nature may be included if the ED presentation is within 6 hours of symptom onset.)
- Experiencing at least 30 minutes of chest pain or other anginal equivalent symptoms. (Note: Subjects who have symptoms of shorter duration due to pharmacologic intervention may be included.)
- Patient (or Legal Representative) unable or unwilling to provide written informed consent.
- Patient unwilling or unlikely to comply with study procedures, including protocol-specified blood sampling or telephone follow-up at 30 days and 6 months.
- Vulnerable populations as deemed inappropriate for study by site principal investigator.
- ST-elevation or other ECG criteria that result that is diagnostic for AMI and results in patient being sent for percutaneous coronary interventions (PCI) or being treated with thrombolytics6.
- Pulmonary Edema requiring CPAP, BIPAP, or mechanical ventilation
- Tachyarrhythmias (SVT, V-Tach, rapid atrial fib)
- End Stage Renal Disease on Hemodialysis
- Cardiac Arrest prior to arrival
- Implantable Defibrillator firing prior to arrival
- Hemodynamically unstable patients
- Trauma injury to the chest
