Treatment

If the reason for the elevated cardiac enzymes is not a heart attack, a doctor may treat whatever condition is causing the enzyme levels to be elevated. The doctor may also suggest that a person makes healthful lifestyle changes to keep the heart working as well as possible.

If a doctor determines that a heart attack caused the elevated cardiac enzymes levels, the person will require treatment in the hospital with medications or surgery to restore blood flow to the heart.

Doctors may also prescribe the following medications for a person who has had a heart attack:

  • drugs that dissolve blood clots, known as thrombolytics
  • blood thinners, such as heparin
  • antiplatelet agents to keep blood clots from getting bigger
  • nitroglycerin
  • ACE inhibitors
  • pain medications
