NT-proBNP testing is useful in the clinical setting because it assists early detection of the potential for in-hospital mortality in patients with heart failure (3). BNP and NT-proBNP is helpful in(2001). The impact of cardiac natriuretic peptide determination on the diagnosis and management of heart failure. To evaluate the use of B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal proBNP ( NT-proBNP) in the diagnosis of heart failure, prediction of cardiac events and monitoring of treatment response in patients diagnosed with heart failure The F-test revealed that the NT-ProBNP levels in the group with heart failure, the group with non-cardiogenic dyspnea and the group of healthy children were significantly different [FFurthermore, the accuracy of the diagnosis greatly improved when the plasma NT-proBNP level was set at 598 ng/l.

Eur Heart J. 200527:330-7. Medline 26. Furthermore, the AUC values were 0.86 for both BNP and NT-proBNP, suggesting that regardless of the clinical setting, the cut point chosen, or the test used, measurement of B-type natriuretic peptides is useful in the diagnosis of HF. The N-terminal prohormone of brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP or BNPT) is a prohormone with a 76 amino acid N-terminal inactive protein that is cleaved from the molecule to release brain natriuretic peptide.

Evaluate for hyperthyroidism (if appropriate), systemic hypertension and renal disease. u What are the Indications for BNP (or NT-proBNP) Testing in the Primary Care Setting?1 The recommended indication for BNP (or NT-proBNP) testing in the primary care setting is: to confirm or exclude the diagnosis of HF. Performance of NPs for the diagnosis of AHF was tested and compared using C-statistics in the entire cohort and in conditions previously described to confound interpretation of NPs such as older age, renal failure, obesity, atrial fibrillation or paced rhythm, and in the NT-proBNP grey zone. "The introduction of the point-of-care RAMP(R) NT-proBNP Test is a significant advance as it supports the drive for speed and accuracy of diagnosis for patients presenting in emergency rooms and for early detection in ambulatory care. 2.
