Figure 3: Dynamic Biomarkers for POCT Measurement

(A) In the emergency room, high-sensitivity troponin assays resolve small differences in troponin levels to rule out clinically important myocardial injury after serial measurements performed at increasingly short time intervals. (B) In the cardiac catheterization laboratory and the cardiac surgery operative room, activated clotting time (ACT) measurements are used to follow the dynamics of patient coagulation.
