Abstract:

Cardiac troponin represents a sensitive and specific marker of ischemic myocardial damage in adult and neonatal populations. Cardiac function in neonates could be influenced by the severity of respiratory distress and its ventilatory management. This short review summarizes the experimental and clinical evidence regarding the role of cardiac troponin in assessment of cardiac function, in following findings: neonatal intensive care, respiratory distress syndrome, asphyxia, congenital heart disease and post cardiac surgery.

Keywords: Troponin, neonatal intensive care, respiratory distress syndrome, asphyxia, congenital heart disease and post cardiac surgery
