HOMEMED's Cardiac "Combo" rapid test screens for elevated levels of cardiac enzymes (Troponin I 0.05ng/ml CK- MB 0.5 ng/ml and Myoglobin 50ng/ml) to detect cardiac muscle injury

Limits Myocardial injury

Rapid bedside diagnosis and early treatment of ACS/AMI is essential for limitation of myocardial injury and subsequent reduction of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Diagnosis of ACS/AMI is made if two or more of the following diagnostic criteria are met:

  • Typical history
  • E.C.G. changes
  • Elevated cardiac enzymes

Increased window of cardiac muscle injury detection

No single cardiac enzyme determination meets the criteria for an ideal marker of AMI diagnosis in patients who are evaluated at various times after onset of chest pain

Cardiac Marker Time to Initial Detectable Level Time to Peak Level Time to Return to Normal
Myoglobin (MYO) 2-4 hours 8-10 hours 24 hours
Cardiac Troponin I (cTnI) 4-6 hours 12 hours 3-10 days
Creatine Kinase (CK), CK-MB 4-8 hours 12-24 hours 3-4 days
Lactate Dehydrogenase 10-12 hours 48-72 hours <7-10 days
Cardiac Troponin T 4-6 hours 12-48 hours 7-10 days

Multi-marker approach is MORE accurate

  • Sensitivity 99.1%
  • Specificity 98.6%
