The accident was Sunday at 12:35 in the afternoon. Surgery was Tuesday, mid day. Heart attack event began about 11:00 pm Wednesday night. Prior to that troponin level was 1. Following first attack it went to 34.5. Second attack was 11:00 am yesterday. Most recent troponin was 38.7. They do have the echo results but don't give me any of that information. What should I ask when they come in this morning? I just talked to his night nurse who said he was doing well overnight. No more tachycardia.
I did receive it. I have one more question. I read " herefore, the usual scenario is that there was a pre-existing condition narrowing and the sudden blockage was precipitated by the acute condition." The acute condition is the accident trauma? That's my only question. Your answer has been extremely good. Today I will be able to get the information I need to understand what his condition is and what his prognosis is. I didn't know what questions to ask. I'm disappointed they didn't tell me.
