Cardiac Enzymes

About this test

Cardiac enzymes are chemicals that are found naturally in the blood and include creatine kinase (CK), aspartate aminotranferase (AST) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH).

Cardiac enzymes enzymes rise and peak at differing times after heart muscle injury and the elevations can remain peaked for several days.

Cardiac enzymes are released when the heart muscle is damaged, such as during a heart attack (myocardial infarction)and results in an elevated enzyme level.

There are a number of other cardiac related causes for elevated cardiac enzymes such as cardiac contusion, pericarditis and cardiac surgery. In these conditions, cardiac muscle is injured by a variety of causes including trauma and surgery which then cause a release of enzymes.
