Recommendation ID
DG15/2
Question
NICE recommends the collection of further outcome data through clinical audit in centres adopting 'early rule-out protocols' with high-sensitivity troponin testing. The data collected through audit should be sufficient to allow analysis of the optimal timing of samples taken after presentation to an emergency department and the optimal high-sensitivity troponin test cut-offs for both ruling out and ruling in NSTEMI.
Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)
None.
