Tests are being carried out on 37 patients and healthy volunteers, to differentiate the various, from heart independent, creatin-phosphokinase (CPK) increases, in order to recognize anaesthesia-endangered patients. A rise of the serum-CPK-level, dependent on trauma is insignificant for the anaesthesia. A significant rise of the CPK during a gener al anaesthesia and particularly extreme high values after 24 hours, (example, more than 10 000 U/l) is reason to think of a course of a malignant… CONTINUE READING
