Purpose: The aim of this study was to assess the determinants and prognostic value of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T peak plasma concentration in intensive care unit patients with non-cardiogenic shock.
Material and methods: A prospective observational cohort study was conducted in a single intensive care unit between November 2014 and December 2015.
Results: During the study period, 206 patients were hospitalized in the intensive care unit for non-cardiogenic shock and the median peak high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T was 55.1 [24.5-136] pg/mL. A multivariate analysis combining all variables showed that higher body mass index (t = 2.52, P = 0.01), lower left ventricular systolic function (t = -2.73, P = 0.007), higher white blood cell count (t = 3.72, P = 0.0001), lower creatinine clearance (t = -2.84, P = 0.0005), higher lactate level (t = 2.62, P = 0.01) and ST-segment depression (t = 3.98, P = 0.0001) best correlated with log10-transformed high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T peak plasma concentration. After multivariate analysis, the high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T peak was not associated with a significant reduction of in-hospital mortality (adjusted odds ratio = 0.99 (95% confidence interval: 0.93-1.02)).
Conclusion: High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T elevation was very common in patients hospitalized for non-cardiogenic shock. The factors significantly associated with high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T peak plasma concentration were higher body mass index, decreased left ventricular systolic ejection fraction, higher leucocyte count, decreased renal function, increased lactate level, and ST-segment depression. The high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T peak was not significantly associated with in-hospital mortality in this setting.
