Cardiac Injury Profile Test Overview

Myocardial infarction is a cardiac condition, where there is temporary or permanent cessation of the blood supply to the heart muscles. This is also referred to as a heart attack. There are various predisposing factors to cardiac disorders like age, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, family history etc. If a heart attack occurs, there are various blood markers that confirm the diagnosis and indicate the severity of the condition. A Cardiac Injury Profile- Maxi is a comprehensive panel that includes tests to measure the acute cardiac injury or the extent of damage to the heart muscle in case of a heart attack. These parameters are known as cardiac markers.

Heart failure, which weak or damaged heart muscles can cause, is the failure of the heart to pump blood to the body's organs adequately. Additionally, one of the main causes of cardiac disorders is the obstruction of the heart's arteries brought on by lipid increases, particularly cholesterol.

There is frequently a lag between the start of heart harm and the emergence of particular blood proteins. To reduce the risk of a heart attack, the testing might be performed sequentially.

A myocardial infarction is a heart disorder in which the blood supply to the cardiac muscles is temporarily or permanently cut off. This also goes by the name "heart attack." Several factors may predispose an individual to heart problems. Some of these include,

  • Age.
  • Hypertension.
  • Diabetes.
  • Cholesterol.
  • Family history of cardiac problems.

Several blood indicators can be used to diagnose and assess the severity of a heart attack. A Profile of Cardiac Injury Maxi is a comprehensive panel that comprises tests to gauge the severity of heart attack-related heart muscle damage or acute cardiac injury. These measurements are referred to as cardiac indicators.

Frequently Asked Questions

Cardiac injury profile test is done to assess the extent of injury to the heart muscles by measuring various parameters or cardiac markers. These include:
NT-Pro BNP: These are proteins found in the blood vessels and the heart that are used to measure injury to the heart muscles.
CPK-MB test: This a test that measure the creatinine phosphokinase levels in the blood due to specific component CPK-MB that indicates any injury to the heart muscles. 
Troponin 1: It is a cardiac marker elevated in patients suffering from acute myocardial infarction. Highly sensitive assay can detect elevated levels of Troponin-I as early as within 3 hours after the onset of chest pain
Myoglobin: It is also a cardiac marker that indicates congestive heart failure and other cardiac conditions.

When a patient exhibits any indications of cardiac disease, these tests are typically prescribed. Adults should get these scans once every four to six years as a preventative measure if they have no additional heart disease risk factors. The following symptoms are seen in those who are at higher risk of developing heart disease -

  1. Smoking cigarettes.
  2. Being overweight or obese.
  3. Eating unhealthy food high in saturated fat.
  4. Living a sedentary lifestyle.
  5. More than 45 years old.
  6. Hypertension.
  7. Family history of early heart disease.
  8. Diabetes.

Cardiac injury profile test measures the levels of NT-Pro BNP, Troponin I, CKMB, Myoglobin components in the blood.

cardiac injury profile test requires a blood sample. A tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is then asked to make a fist. This helps in the build-up of blood filling the veins. The skin is disinfected before needle insertion and the blood sample is collected in vacutainer. 

High levels of CPK- total and CPK-MB particularly along with other parameters are indicative of a myocardial infarction (heart attack). These levels peak after 3-6 hours and if no further injury, return to normal within 24 hours.
High troponin 1 levels are seen in myocardial infarction. It is also a prognostic marker in patients with acute coronary syndrome and to identify the risk of future cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction, heart failure, ischaemic stroke, coronary revascularisation, and cardiovascular death in asymptomatic people.
High NT-Pro BNP and myoglobin levels indicate an acute myocardial infarction and are elevated in case of a recent heart attack

These tests are often recommended when a patient shows any signs of heart illness. If they do not have any extra risk factors for heart disease, adults should receive these scans every four to six years as a preventive step.

You should get tested if you exhibit any of the above-mentioned symptoms of heart conditions

There is no elaborate preparation necessary for the blood testing. Your healthcare provider will provide you with essential advice if you are required to fast before the test.

The Cardiac Injury Profile-Maxi Test is a thorough examination that determines the level of damage to your cardiac muscles. Your doctor may or may not prescribe additional tests based on the results
