NT-Pro BNP Serum in Trichy
NT-Pro BNP Serum test measures the levels of BNP or NT-pro BNP in your blood.
To help detect, diagnose, and evaluate the severity of congestive heart failure (CHF)
Your doctor may recommend this test for you if he notices the signs of a heart disease. The symptoms are:
- Shortness of breath
- Excessive fluid in the abdomen
- Heart attack
- Swollen ankles and legs
B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and N-terminal pro b-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) chemicals produced in the heart and are perceived in the blood when there is strain on the heart for performing its regular function of pumping out blood to all the organs.
Reference Values Of NT-Pro BNP Serum
N-terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) values below 300 pg/mL have a 99% negative predictive value for excluding acute congestive heart failure (CHF). A cutoff of 1,200 pg/mL, for patients with an eGFR below 60 yields a diagnostic sensitivity and specificity of 89% and 72% for acute CHF.
Higher-than-normal results suggest that the person has been suffering from heart issues, and the level of BNP or NT-proBNP in the blood is related to its intensity. Higher levels of BNP or NT-proBNP are often linked with worse progression of the disease. Normal results show that the person's symptoms are likely due to something other than heart failure.
