night I want to ask what is the difference between troponin T and troponin I tests
Troponin is a protein molecule from muscles. There are 3 types of troponin, but only 2 specific types are related to the heart muscle, namely T and I. Troponin T and I are released into the bloodstream when heart muscle is damaged due to a heart attack or serious heart disease.
The difference is:
The sensitivity is 84% and the specificity is 81% for myocardial infarction
Specificity of renadah 22% for unstable angina
The advantage is, it is used because of its high sensitivity to detect ischemic heart muscle and can directly classify risks that will arise afterwards
90% sensitivity and 95% specificity for myocardial infarction
Low specificity for unstable angina, up to 36%
Usually combined with an ECG examination to assess a patient's risk
If you need this troponin examination, please consult a cardiologist first.
All examinations should be based on the advice of your cardiologist
Still other tests will be needed, besides this troponin to diagnose heart problems, heart attacks. Please discuss this with the doctor
Keep your heart healthy by: healthy lifestyle, eating healthy food, getting enough rest and exercising regularly.
So, hopefully you can help.
