From: Detecting myocardial infarction in critical illness using screening troponin measurements and ECG recordings

  MI, N (%) (N = 37) Elevated cTn, N (%) (N = 15) No cTn elevation, N (%) (N = 51) p value1 p value2
Arrhythmia requiring treatment 1 (2.7) 0 (0) 1 (1.8) 0.846 - MI vs cTn, p = 1.000
- cTn vs no cTn elevation, p = 1.000
- MI vs no cTn elevation, p = 1.000
Pulmonary oedema 14 (37.8) 3 (20.0) 6 (11.8) 0.015 - MI vs cTn, p = 0.330
- cTn vs no cTn elevation, p = 0.414
- MI vs no cTn elevation, p = 0.005
Non-fatal cardiac arrest 2 (5.4) 0 (0) 0 (0) 0.162 - MI vs cTn, p = 1.000
- cTn vs no cTn elevation, p = NE
- MI vs no cTn elevation, p = 0.174
Cardiogenic shock 2 (5.4) 0 (0) 0 (0) 0.162 - MI vs cTn, p = 1.000
- cTn vs no cTn elevation, p = NE
- MI vs no cTn elevation, p = 0.174
  1. cTn = cardiac troponin; MI = myocardial infarction; NE = not estimable; 1p value indicates a three-way comparison; 2p value indicates a two-way comparison; note that two patients had more than one MI, so the totals exceeds 100 per cent.
