NT-proBNPHelping to identify the severity of congestive heart failure and risk stratification of acute coronary syndrome

The Stratus® CS Acute Care™ NT-proBNP assay is an in vitro diagnostic test for the quantitative measurement of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in heparinized plasma. In individuals suspected of having CHF, measurements of NT-proBNP are used as an aid in diagnosis and the assessment of severity. The test is further indicated for the risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndrome and heart failure, resulting from left-ventricular dysfunction.

Zastosowanie kliniczne

Measurements of NT-proBNP are used as an aid in the diagnosis of individuals suspected of having congestive heart failure (CHF). Other potential clinical uses of NT-proBNP are risk stratification of patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and CHF, as well as treatment and monitoring in patients with left ventricular dysfunction (LVD).
