What is Cholinesterase assay used for?
Cholinesterase is a blood test that checks the concentrations of two substances: acetylcholinesterase and pseudocholinesterase. These substances help the body’s nervous system to work properly by enabling the nerves to send signals. Acetylcholinesterase is found in nerve tissue and red blood cells; and pseudocholinesterase is mainly found in the liver.
Cholinesterase levels can be measured to find out if you are likely to have temporary paralysis after being given a muscle relaxant called suxamethonium during surgery. It can also be measured to screen for exposure to the effects of organic phosphorus insecticides.
