OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine whether plasma levels of amino-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (N-BNP) could differentiate between heart failure and lung disease among infants with acute respiratory distress. In addition, our aim was to determine whether plasma levels of N-BNP could be used to monitor the effects of treatment among infants with heart failure. METHODS Infants (age range: 1-36 months; median age: 10 months) who presented with respiratory distress… CONTINUE READING
