Frequently Asked Questions
CPK values help to diagnose muscle injuries. CPK test is done in cases of :
- Suspected heart attack
- Cardiac muscle injuries to assess the severity like myocarditis.
- In skeletal muscle conditions like polymyosistis where there is chronic muscle inflammation.
- Certain inherited muscle disorders like muscle dystrophies.

CPK test measures the level of Creatinine Phosphokinase (CPK) in the blood.
CPK 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.
Elevated levels of CPK along with other parameters are indicative of a myocardial infarction (heart attack). CPK levels may also rise in case of muscle inflammations (polymyosistis) and muscular dystrophies. Certain medications and brain conditions may also lead to elevated levels.
