The ADAPT Trial is an observational study from Oz/NZ which looks uses TIMI 0, and negative Trop I at 0 and 2 hours as a Low Risk Chest Pain rule out. I will direct you to 2 slightly different takes on the study below.
I will note here that I discussed this with our Chest Pain Pathway author, Dr Scheuermeyer. He ran our cohort of patients from the validation study using the ADAPT criteria. Our study missed NO (that is zero) events. Using the ADAPT criteria on our cohort would have resulted in six (6) missed events.
