In Your Medical Field
BNP levels are simple and objective measures of cardiac function. These measurements can diagnose (congestive) heart failure, including diastolic dysfunction. The BNP test result is particularly useful for ruling out heart failure in the ER. The BNP test may run with fingertip blood and delivers reliable results in 12 minutes so that clinicians can proactively respond.
