Differentiation of Cardiac from Noncardiac Pleural Effusions in Cats using Second‐Generation Quantitative and Point‐of‐Care NT‐proBNP Measurements

Abstract

BACKGROUND Pleural effusion is a common cause of dyspnea in cats. N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) measurement, using a first-generation quantitative ELISA, in plasma and pleural fluid differentiates cardiac from noncardiac causes of pleural effusion. HYPOTHESIS/OBJECTIVES To determine whether NT-proBNP measurements using second… (More)
