Given the following data, calculate the LDL:
Cholesterol = 400
Triglyceride = 430
HDL = 38
unable to calculate
IF triglycerides are over 400 mg/dL formula is not valid
VLDL = triglyceride/5
Calculate the LDL; if cholesterol is 200, triglycerides = 200, HDL = 50
VLDL = triglyceride/5
LDL = Chol - HDL - VLDL
T or F CK-MB levels will remain elevated 6 days after the occurrence of the MI.
T or F a CK = 400, CK-MB = 4.0, index = 1.0% are indicative of non-cardiac muscle damage.
T or F there are nor (statistically) significant changes in BNP concentration associated with hypertension, diabetes and renal insufficiency.
What lab result will be abnormal 4 days after the myocardial event?
CK-MB ref range
< 4.3 ng/ml
Cholesterol ref range
< 200 mg/dl
HDL ref range
How many hours post myocardial infarction does myoglobin appear in the blood?
T or F blood troponin I levels become elevated between 4 and 8 hours following an AMI and can remain elevated for 4 to 9 days following damage to the myocardium.
Which of the 3 biomarkers, CK-MB, myoglobin and troponin I will return to normal levels soonest following a myocardial infarction?
The BNP test is useful for diagnosis and management of?
The lipoprotein that is responsible for the transport of cholesterol from a peripheral cells to the liver for excretion is:
The desirable range for cholesterol levels as determined by the NCEP is:
less than 200 mg/dL
T or F an ideal cardiac biomarker should have absolute cardiac tissue specificity and should not exist in other tissues.
Serum lipase catalyzes the:
hydrolysis of triglycerides to fatty acids and glycerol
Which of the following lipid results would be expected to be falsely elevated on a serum specimen from a nonfasting patient?
A "milky" serum from blood collected about an hour after the patient has eaten a heavy meal often has elevated:
Triglycerides are the main constituent of:
chylomicrons and VLDL
An increase of 10 mg/dl of HDL cholesterol would:
decrease the risk of myocardial infarction
