What could troponin 4.8 and high rbc levels with heartburn indicate?

Hello...my husband felt dizzy and complained of heartburn. He fell to the floor. This was the second time it happened. He spent 3 days in hospital, after which they let him home, but his troponin level was 4.8 when he entered and only went down slightly.His red blood cells are also high. They will do tests on him in the coming weeks. What could be the problem? Thanks you.
