The predictive value of plasma biomarkers in discharged heart failure patients: the role of plasma BNP.

Abstract

To date, heart failure (HF) prognosis is still difficult: symptoms and signs are often non-specific, and poor sensitive indicators for HF severity. Brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) is now included in the current guidelines for HF diagnosis, management and risk assessment because of its high specificity and sensibility. BNP became a first-line exam in HF… (More)
