NT-proBNP

Helping to diagnose heart diseases and evaluate the severity level

BNP and NTproBNP are peptides that are continuously produced in the heart. When the muscles in the left ventricle over-stretch as in heart failure, the secretion of these peptides into blood increases. One may utilize the level of NTproBNP in blood to assess the cardiac event and its severity. Both of BNP and NTproBNP can be used to show different aspects of the heart failure.
