The Cholinesterase test is a blood test that analyzes the levels of 2 substances in the body that are essential in the proper functioning of the nervous system. These substances are acetylcholinesterase and pseudocholinesterase. Nerves need these substances to send signals. Acetylcholinesterase is found in nerve tissue and red blood cells and pseudocholinesterase is found primarily in the liver.
When is the Cholinesterase (Pseudocholinesterase) test recommended?
It is recommended:To diagnose poisoning or toxicity from organophosphates, which are usually found in pesticides. In addition, this test could be ordered to diagnose liver disease and before giving anesthesia with succinylcholine.Toxicity can follow rapid absorption of the compound in the lungs, skin, or gastrointestinal tract. The symptoms of toxicity are varied, ranging from vomiting to paralysis or coma, and depend on the compound, quantity, and the site of exposure.
What does it measure?
The Cholinesterase test: Analyzes the total activity of cholinesterase in the patient’s blood. This is useful because if the activity is low, it is suggested an atypical enzyme variant is present and that the patient is at risk of prolonged effects from the muscle relaxants suxamethonium or mivacurium. Also, the low total enzyme activity in the people working with organophosphorus compounds on farms or in the chemical industry may indicate acute exposure.The Cholinesterase blood test is used to monitor the levels of two important transmitters in the body, viz., acetylcholinesterase and pseudocholinesterase. These transmitters help in the proper functioning of the nervous system. AChE is found in the red blood cells and nerve tissue, while PChE is found in the liver.
