Table 4 Overview of patients with cTNI elevations (ng/ml). 4 were diagnosed with NSTEMI, 1 with NSTEMI as a prodrome to a STEMI 4 days later. The NSTEMI diagnosis was “formal” and used the definition of rising cTNI levels in follow up laboratory tests. No patient except the one with a STEMI reported chest pain
