Abstract

Introduction: Cardiac etiology may play a role in deaths due to the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). Therefore, the relationship between troponin I and mortality in critical COVID-19 patients is of interest. Troponin I, one of the heart-specific proteins, is used as a biomarker to detect myocardial necrosis. In the present study, our aim is to demonstrate the relationship of the Troponin I trend with mortality in critical COVID-19 patients.
