Abstract: A BNP level less than 100 pg per mL (100 ng per L) can rule out heart failure. (Strength of Recommendation [SOR]: A, based on meta-analyses.) BNP levels should be used when the pretest probability of heart failure based on overall clinical assessment is of an intermediate likelihood. (SOR: A, based on meta-analyses.)
