Cardiac biomarkers have well-established roles in acute coronary syndrome and congestive heart failure. In many instances, the detection of cardiac biomarkers may aid in the diagnosis and risk assessment of critically ill patients. Despite increasing interest in the use of cardiac biomarkers in noncardiac critical illness, no clear consensus exists on how and in which settings markers should be measured. This article briefly describes what constitutes an ideal biomarker and focuses on those that have been most well studied in critical illness, specifically troponin, the natriuretic peptides, and heart-type fatty acid-binding protein.
