Association of Heart Rate with N-Terminal Pro-B-Type Natriuretic Peptide in Septic Patients: A Prospective Observational Cohort Study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Excessive sympathetic stress has multiple adverse effects during critical illness including sepsis. Recent studies showed that heart rate control had a significant effect on reducing mortality in septic shock patients. Furthermore, elevated N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) levels in septic patients were reportedly associated… (More)
