B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) Test

B-Type Natriuretic Peptide (BNP) Test

Price: $112.99

BNP is increased in congestive heart failure, left ventricular hypertrophy, acute myocardial infarction, coronary angioplasty, and hypertension. Elevations are also observed in pulmonary hypertension (indicating right ventricular dysfunction), acute lung injury, hypervolemic states, chronic renal failure and cirrhosis. Decreasing levels indicate therapeutic response to anti-hypertensive therapy. BNP levels may also predict the risk of a cardiovascular event such as a heart attack or stroke.

A significant deviation from the normal range may require further evaluation by your physician.
