NT-proBNP Test Kit

BackDuration: 15 minutes

Sensitive biomarker for the diagnosis and monitoring of heart failure

Clinical significance of test

N-terminal pro b-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) is one of the two main natriuretic peptides substances made by the heart. Normally, only small levels of NT-proBNP are found in the bloodstream. High levels can mean your heart isn’t pumping as much blood as your body needs. When this happens, it’s known as┬áheart failure, sometimes called congestive heart failure.

Steps of operation

Clinical application

  • Evaluate heart contractile, diastolic dysfunction, and ventricular segment wall motion coordination
  • Indicate heart failure (HF) patient at the early stage, determine HF risk levels, monitor medical efficiency of HF drug, evaluate prognosis of HF patient
  • Distinguish dyspnea that caused by HF from other diseases
  • Risk assessment indicator for Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS)
