[Prognostic implication of plasma N-terminal-pro-brain natriuretic peptide in weaning from mechanical ventilation].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To explore the relationship between plasma N-terminal-pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels of patients before weaning and outcome of weaning from mechanical ventilation (MV) in patients. METHODS A total of 126 intensive care unit (ICU) patients with MV were enrolled from August 2008 to December 2009, and the cause composition was… (More)
