More Information about the Creatine Kinase-MB Test Kit


Creatine Kinase-MB Test Kit is used to measure Creatine Kinase in the blood, serum, and plasma. Measurement of Creatine Kinase is suitable when a patient is suffering from chest pain or when a patient’s diagnosis in unclear. Creatine Kinase MB Test Kit can provide information in distinguishing a skeletal muscle to a heart muscle damage. It is used mostly used after a heart attack occurred to detect a second heart attack or monitor the heart of any damage. The Creatine Kinase-MB is an enzyme found in heart muscles; injured heart muscle cells release Creatine Kinase-MB during a heart attack. The test kit shows a quantitative result wherein the CK-MB ratio to total CK is more than 2.5-3 indicates a heart damage, and value below 2.5 indicates damage in the skeletal muscles.

The Disease

Creatine Kinase

Creatine Kinase is a type of enzyme that can be found mostly in skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle (myocardium) and the brain. When a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply (hypoxia) or other injuries occur, cell membranes are disrupted and result to a release of CK enzyme from the cellular cytosol to the systemic circulation. Thus, the increase in CK level has been used as a test for myocardial infarctions. The Creatine Kinase-MB in particular are more concentrated in the myocardium, but also exists in skeletal muscles. This test can be used to determine whether an increase in creatine kinase level is caused by either skeletal or heart muscle damage.

Treatments

In the occurrences of a heart attack, an immediate treatment must be carried out to minimize heart damage and address blockages. Treatments can include the use of both drugs and surgical procedures. Control of blood pressure by reducing hypertension is important to decrease the risk of recurrence. Lifestyle changes are usually recommended, but prescription of medications is often used. Generally, drugs that help with the heart to increase and synchronize contractions, as well as antiarrhythmics, are prescribed. Other medications might include beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, anticoagulants, antiplatelet, and drugs that help dissolve blood clots. Medical procedures such as angioplasty or coronary artery bypass grafting might also be recommended for the patients.

Creatine Kinase-MB Test Kit FAQs



When should you take the Creatine Kinase-MB test?
Your doctor will recommend to take the test when an increase in CK level is observed, to determine whether it is due to skeletal or heart muscle damage. It is also used to monitor heart damage when suspected of having had a second heart attack.
How do you interpret the test result?
Increase in CK-MB and CK levels indicates that the individual has recently had a heart attack. Levels may drop and rise again when a second heart attack might occur or there is an ongoing heart damage. To determine damage in either skeletal or heart muscle, the ration of CK-MB to total CK must be observed. When the ratio is more than 2.5-3, it is most commonly due to damage in the heart muscle. When the ratio is lower, it might suggest damage in the skeletal muscle.
Where can I buy the Creatine Kinase-MB test kits?
