Acute myocardial infarction (AMI) is a life threatening condition that needs emergency diagnosis and early treatment in the emergency room. Rapid laboratory testing for creatine kinase (CK)-MB greatly revolutionized the diagnosis and management of acute myocardial infarction. We report a case with chest pain that referred to the emergency department (ED). Laboratory data showed high serum levels of creatine kinase and lactate dehydrogenase. With diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, he was… CONTINUE READING
