Details

This test is used to diagnose or rule out certain rare tumors, such as pheochromocytoma or neuroblastoma. The catecholamine blood test may be useful when the person has persistent hypertension or is currently experiencing a sudden burst (paroxysm) of hypertension. The adrenal glands make large amounts of catecholamines as a reaction to stress. Catecholamines help the body respond to stress or fright and prepare the body for "fight-or-flight" reactions. It may also be done in patients with those conditions to determine if treatment is working.
