Short ACTH Stimulation Tests A short ACTH stimulation test should be performed in all patients suspected of having adrenal insufficiency. It involves the intravenous administration of synthetic ACTH(1–24) (cosyntropin), which has the full biologic potency of native ACTH(1–39), and subsequent measurement of serum cortisol concentrations at regular intervals for up to 1 h (usually at 0, 30, and 60 min). High-Dose ACTH Stimulation Test This test consists of determining serum cortisol responses immediately before and 30 and 60 min after intravenous administration of 250 mg of cosyntropin.
