The editorial discusses the content of eight abstracts from the "17th Annual Biomarkers and Personalised Medicine in Cardiovascular Disease Symposium," published in Biomarkers. These abstracts touch on various aspects of cardiovascular biomarkers, including markers for cardiac injury, infarction, arrhythmias, acute heart failure, and infection.
RCE's abstract by Titus et al. was highlighted for its potential, used alongside a neural network, to detect cardiac injury effectively, potentially altering how suspected ACS cases are evaluated, particularly in community and emergency settings. The editorial suggests that while these findings hold promise, future research should consider their impact on standard pathways and on patient groups without easy access to digital devices, such as the elderly. Potentially, unnecessary transportation can be avoided and a combination with telemedical services may form a “mobile emergency department”.
