What Is A Cardiac Enzyme Test And How Its Done?

A cardiac enzyme test, also known as a cardiac biomarkers test, is a blood test that measures the levels of specific enzymes or proteins in the blood that are released into the bloodstream when there is damage to the heart muscle. These enzymes and proteins are crucial indicators used by healthcare professionals to diagnose and monitor heart conditions, particularly heart attacks.

How Cardiac Enzymes Test Are Perfromed

Cardiac enzyme tests are typically performed using a blood sample obtained from a vein in the arm.

  1. The healthcare provider will clean the skin over the vein with an antiseptic solution.
  2. A tourniquet may be applied to the upper arm.
  3. A needle attached to a syringe or vacuum tube will be inserted into the vein to draw the blood sample.
  4. Once an adequate amount of blood has been collected, the needle will be removed, and pressure will be applied to the puncture site to stop any bleeding.
  5. The blood sample will then be sent to a laboratory for analysis.

Results of cardiac enzyme tests are typically available within a few hours to a day, depending on the laboratory’s turnaround time. But at COPPELL ER we get results instantly without waiting for hours and days. Elevated levels of cardiac enzymes may indicate a heart attack or other heart-related conditions, and further diagnostic tests and treatment may be recommended based on the results.

What Is An STD & Do You Perform STD's Test At Coppell ER !

An STD, or sexually transmitted disease, is an infection that is typically transmitted through sexual contact, including vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Common STDs include chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, genital herpes, HPV (human papillomavirus), HIV (human immunodeficiency virus), and trichomoniasis.

In an Emergency Room, tests for STDs may be conducted when a patient presents with symptoms suggestive of a sexually transmitted infection or if there has been potential exposure to an STD. The specific tests performed may vary depending on the patient’s symptoms, medical history, and the healthcare provider’s assessment. Common STD tests that may be conducted in an ER include:

  1. Swab Tests: Swabs may be taken from the genital area, throat, or rectum to collect samples for testing for bacteria or viruses.

  2. Urine Tests: Urine samples may be collected to test for the presence of bacteria or other organisms that cause STDs.

  3. Blood Tests: Blood samples may be taken to screen for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B, and other blood-borne STDs.

  4. Physical Examination: A physical examination may be conducted to check for visible signs of STDs such as genital warts, ulcers, or discharge.
