BLOOD TEST TO DETECT HEART ATTACKS

BLOOD TEST TO DETECT HEART ATTACKS

Heart attacks can be diagnosed more quickly, thanks to the high-sensitivity blood test of troponin. Troponin, a protein that is released when a heart muscle is damaged, has been used in Europe since 2010, but it was not until last year that it was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
