Elevated Troponin Level After Oral Sex

From a case report in Obstetrics & Gynecology.

A 29 year old pregnant woman was taken to the Emergency Room unconscious one hour after having oral sex with her partner. Cardiology was consulted for elevated troponin levels. It was determined the patient suffered from an air embolism after having air insufflation of her vagina leading to a troponin leak.

There you go. Make of that what you will.
