Abstract

Within the past decade, the use of biomarkers to detect myocardial injury in the emergency department (ED) has been given increasing prominence as evident by the numerous studies and guidelines documenting their use. This review details the scope of the clinical problem, the history of changes in the definition of myocardial infarction (MI) and the new approaches, as well as suggestions for using laboratory biomarkers in the early detection of MI in the ED.
