Cardiac markers

Cardiac-specific biological markers (cardiac markers) tests are used to screen for heart damage and other problems, to diagnose heart disease that causes symptoms such as chest pain, angina and shortness of breath, and to monitor treatment and postoperative condition. Examination of cardiac biomarkers helps us to understand whether the symptoms are caused by a heart attack (myocardial infarction), angina, heart failure or other problems. Elevated cardiac enzymes may also indicate acute coronary syndrome or myocardial ischemia.
