Call Value for Troponin Changing March 4

Beginning Monday, March 4, the Core laboratories in the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine will change the level at which critical calls for troponin (Tnl) are made from >=0.04 ng/mL to >=0.3 ng/mL.

This change should help streamline care to patients as call frequency at the existing level can sometimes be disruptive.

The change in call value was approved by the Medical Executive Committee. The reference cutoff for normal patients and suspicion of myocardial infarction will remain as is.

This call value may need to change again when the Core laboratories begin offering high-sensitivity TnI.
