Guidelines published in 2021 have supported natriuretic peptide (NP) testing for the prognostication in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and for the diagnosis of chronic and acute heart failure (HF). Our objective was to determine if the addition of N-terminal pro B-type NP (NT-proBNP) and glucose to high-sensitivity cardiac troponin (hs-cTn) could better identify emergency department (ED) patients with potential ACS at low- and high-risk for a serious cardiovascular outcome over the next 72 h. The presentation sample in two different ED cohorts which enrolled patients with symptoms suggestive of ACS within six hours of pain onset (Cohort-1, n = 126 and Cohort-2, n = 143) that had Abbott hs-cTnI, Roche hs-cTnT, NT-proBNP and glucose were evaluated for NT-proBNP alone and combined with hs-cTn and glucose for the primary outcome (composite which included death, myocardial infarction, HF, serious arrhythmia and refractory angina) via receiver-operating characteristic (ROC) curve analyses with area under the curve (AUC) and diagnostic estimates derived. The AUC for NT-proBNP for the primary outcome was 0.68 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.59–0.76) and 0.75 (95%CI: 0.67–0.82) in Cohort-1 and 2, respectively, with the 125 ng/L cutoff yielding a higher sensitivity (≥75%) as compared to the 300 ng/L cutoff (≥58%). Using the 125 ng/L cutoff for NT-proBNP with the published glucose and hs-cTn cutoffs for risk-stratification produced a new score (GuIDER score for Glucose, Injury and Dysfunction in the Emergency-setting for cardiovascular-Risk) and yielded higher AUCs as compared to NT-proBNP (p < 0.05). GuIDER scores of 0 and 5 using either hs-cTnI/T yielded sensitivity estimates of 100% and specificity estimates > 92% for the primary outcome. A secondary analysis assessing MI alone in the overall population (combined Cohorts 1 and 2) also achieved 100% sensitivity for MI with a GuIDER cutoff ≥ 2, ruling-out 48% (Roche) and 38% (Abbott) of the population at presentation for MI. Additional studies are needed for the GuIDER score in both the acute and ambulatory setting to further refine the utility, however, the preliminary findings reported here may present a pathway forward for inclusion of NP testing for ruling-out serious cardiac events and MI in the emergency setting.
