Acute myocardial infarction – safe detection few minutes after first symptoms!

Even for an experienced physician it's not easy to diagnose a myocardial infarction. Only about 20% of patients with pain in the chest just had a heart attack. The majority of the patients with the same or with similar symptoms suffer from other diseases. On the other hand a myocardial infarction can show symptoms that can lead to a misinterpretation. Hence it's a huge benefit for the physician and for the patient as well if a rapid and doubtless test can show within minutes whether there was a myocardial infarction or something else.

BelCARDIO - Rapid Test for Myocardial Infarction

Has my patient an acute myocardial infarction?

If a patient just had a cardiac attack, this person can tell a medical professional about the symptoms. Some symptoms like tightness in the chest with acute pain in the left shoulder and arm are typical signals for a heart attack. However there are other symptoms like pain in the stomach or in the belly that could be caused by a cardiac infarction. Otherwise such symptoms can originate from other diseases. It’s always a challenge for every physician or medical professional to find the correct diagnose.

With BelCARDIO you can determine immediately whether a hospitalization is necessary or if other reasons are the cause for thorax pain. A quick decision can help the patient and it’s a relief for your daily work.

BelCARDIO - Invitro Diagnosticum indicates a myocardial infarction

The BelCARDIO Concept

Invitro Diagnostikum - Qualitative test for assessment of heart-specific FABP and cardiac Troponin I in human capillary blood, serum, or plasma.

The determination of the early-phase protein hFABP next to Troponin I in the BelCARDIO test increases the diagnostic sensitivity for acute myocardial infarctions and Non-ST-elevation myocardial infarctions (NSTEMI). The combination of the most rapid biomarker hFABP and Troponin I represents a new generation of point-of-care tests for cardiac events. A broad diagnostic window is covered with just one test.
