BACKGROUND Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) have been shown to be useful biomarkers for the diagnosis of heart failure. Pediatric reference intervals for these analytes have been reported in part. Previous studies lack large numbers in each group, have not covered all age ranges and have not compared results for BNP with NT-proBNP in simultaneously drawn samples. METHODS We measured BNP in whole blood using the Biosite Triage point-of… CONTINUE READING
