Description

Testing the level of NT-proBNP(N-terminal B-type natriuretic propeptide) is performed in patients with suspected congestive heart failure,auxiliary for diagnostic purposes and to assess the severity of the disease.
Natriuretic peptides are important in controlling cardiovascular function, mainly in the diagnosis of left ventricular dysfunction (congestive heart failure -CHF).
This test is important especially in patients with an increased risk of CHF suffering from hypertension, coronary artery disease, diabetes mellitus and the elderly. NT-proBNP concentration is helpful in differentiating cardiac and non-cardiac causes of dyspnea and a good prognostic indicator of heart failure, the course of its treatment.
