Elevated Troponin Levels May Be a Marker for Increased Mortality in ACS

Elevated Troponin Levels May Be a Marker for Increased Mortality in ACS: "Patients with acute coronary syndrome presenting to the emergency department with transient elevation in the ST segment of their electrocardiogram (ECG) who also have elevated troponin levels may be at increased risk for death. The finding suggests that such patients should be treated more aggressively."

  1. May the elevated troponin I be detected in the course of ACS? And is it possibly be reduced during checking from the ECG? Would it be the main cause to death for the CHD ?
