This chapter is not intended to provide a comprehensive, detailed description of characteristics of all potential test parameters in each laboratory species. Appropriate techniques shall be used for the correct identification of specimens and release of results. Regular sessions in neuropathology and cardiovascular pathology are conducted by staff consultants. Serum levels are used to diagnosis acute myocardial infarction, rhabdomyolysis, muscular dystrophy and acute renal failure Also known as CK, creatine phosphokinase (CPK), phospho-creative kinase, EC 2.7.3.2 Creatinine is a break-down product of creatine phosphate in muscle produced at a fairly constant rate, and used to calculate creatinine clearance and glomerular filtration rate There are three different isoenzymes: CK-MM, CK-BB and CK-MB Skeletal muscle expresses CK-MM (98%) and low levels of CK-MB (1% in type 1 fibers, 2 - 6% in type 2 fibers, higher amounts during skeletal muscle regeneration) Creatine kinase catalyses the conversion of creatine to phosphocreatine, consuming adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and generating adenosine diphosphate (ADP) Markers are ordered as a panel, because different markers have different time frames for detection American College of Cardiology / American Heart Association recommend results within 30 - 60 minutes of admission, which precludes prolonged serial measures of serum levels of markers Suggested point of care multimarker algorithm to detect acute MI: Doubling of myoglobin between 2 sequential specimens with any detectable TnI at least by the second of the 2 specimens, or If total CK < 80 IU/L, don’t do CK-MB An immunometric assay using a monoclonal antibody, in which CK-MB is considered an antigen CK levels were historically used in emergency room patients to test for myocardial infarction (now often replaced by troponin), rhabdomyolysis, muscular dystrophy, myositis, myocarditis, malignant hyperthermia, neuroleptic malignant syndrome CK-MB activity is normal in 25 - 50% of patients with MI at time of admission ( Emerg Med Clin North Am 2001;19:321 ), rises some 4 - 6 hours after the onset of chest pain, peaks within 12 - 24 hours, and returns to baseline levels within 36 - 48 hours High serum levels indicate injury to muscle, including rhabdomyolysis, myocardial infarction, muscular dystrophy, myositis, myocarditis, malignant hyperthermia and neuroleptic malignant syndrome The use of statin medications, commonly used to decrease serum cholesterol levels, may be associated with elevation of the CPK level in 1% of the patients taking these medications, and with actual muscle damage in a much smaller proportion Normal values are usually between 25 and 200 U/L, may be lower in women
