Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a leading cause of adult hospitalization in the United States, and despite advancements in treatment, the disease remains a major clinical challenge. The chief symptom of CHF is dyspnea, but in the urgent-care setting, it is often difficult to distinguish between cardiac and pulmonary causes of this symptom. B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) is mainly synthesized, stored, and released in the ventricular myocardium and is strongly induced during ventricular-wall… CONTINUE READING
