Correlation Study to establish Cardiac Troponin I Levels Obtained Using Non-Invasive Wearable with that of Standard or Care High Sensitivity Cardiac Troponin I (H-51255)
Background: The standard of care treatment for a problem like this is to draw blood and check for a biomarker called troponin I. If these blood levels are elevated, it indicates that you have had damage to your heart. A company called RCE Technologies has developed a non-invasive way to measure troponin I using a device with an optical sensor that is worn on the wrist. The device is called Tropsensor.
Purpose: To compare results from the regular medical tests to the results that are measured on the Tropsensor.
Project status: Enrolling patients from Ben Taub Emergency Department.
Coordinator Role: screen, consent, enroll and collect data.
Open to students: Yes
