Elevated Troponins at Sepsis Predicts Mortality in CV Disease

Elevated levels of troponin I by high-sensitivity assay (hs-TnI) may predict mortality over the next 2 weeks, but not over the longer term, among patients with sepsis when measured during the first four days of an intensive care unit (ICU) stay, a new study suggests.

The results are from a prospective cohort study that excluded people with clinically apparent causes of troponin release.
