In patients with decompensated CHF, does BNP level correlate with clinical severity?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels appear to be inversely correlated with left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) and are higher in patients with decompensated congestive heart failure (SOR: C, small cohort studies). The clinical utility of this association is unclear.
