Guide for use:Help on this term

CODE 8888 if test for CK was not done for this hospital presentation.

Where possible, several CK measures should be recorded and their associated date and time. At a minimum, an initial, peak and late value should be recorded.

When only one CK level is recorded, this should be the peak level.

Comments:Help on this term

Elevation of CK isoenzyme is an indication of damage to muscle.

There are three different CK isoenzyme sub-forms:

- CK-MM (skeletal muscle)

- CK-MB (cardiac muscle)

- CK-BB (brain tissue)
