Cardiac Enzyme Test
Our Doctors Are Just A Few Steps Away!

Cardiac Enzyme Test:

1. What are cardiac enzymes?

Cardiac enzymes studies measure the level of enzymes and proteins that are linked with injury of the heart muscles. These include the enzymes creatinine phosphokinase (CPK), creatinine kinase (CK) and the protein troponin I & troponin T.

2. What enzymes show heart attack?

Cardiac enzymes are proteins that are released into the blood by dying heart muscles. These cardiac enzymes are creatinine phosphokinase (CPK), troponin.

3. What level of troponin indicates heart attack?

Cardiac troponin levels are normally so low that they cannot be detected with most blood tests. Having normal troponin level 12 hours after chest pain has started means a heart attack is unlikely.

4. What does a high troponin level indicate?

If troponin is high, it may indicate that the condition is worsening and they are at increased risk of heart attack.

5. Do troponin level return to normal?

Troponin I is more specific marker of cardiac damage than troponin T. cardiac troponin T level rise 2 to 6 hours after myocardial infarction and remain elevated. Both proteins return to normal range about 7 days after heart attack.

6. What causes high level of troponin?

Elevated levels of troponin indicates:
– myocardial injurt
– acute myocardial infarction
– acute pulmonary embolism
– heart failure
– myocarditis
