Early detection of acute myocardial infarction may help to reduce cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Traditional diagnostic techniques have relied upon standard 12-lead electrocardiographic patterns and elevated serum cardiac enzymes. The results of these investigations may be inconclusive or unavailable during the early hours following infarction.
