BNP Levels in the Hospitalized Patient
  • Number of admissions for HF in the US

= 1 million per year. Annual cost = $56 billion.

  • Hospitalization accounts for 70-75% of direct cost of patient care.
  • Readmission after hospitalization for heart failure = 44% within 6 months.
  • For CVD = 6 million. Annual cost = $351 billion
  • In the US, about 1 million people die of CVD each year, about 40% of all deaths.
  • By 2020 CVD will cause 25 million deaths per year, worldwide.

ENTIRE-TIMI 23 - a multi-national trial that enrolled patients from 43 centers (tPA vs. tPA + abciximab vs. heparin/enoxaparin).

  • BNP measured in baseline samples from 438 patients presenting within 6 hours of STEMI.
  • Patients were followed for clinical outcomes, including death,recurrent myocardial infarction, and congestive heart failure through 30 days after enrollment.

how often should bnp be measured in the hospital
How Often should BNP be Measured in the Hospital?

BNP has a plasma half life of 20 minutes.


1. Admission, discharge, or any major change.

2. 12-24 hours after any change in treatment.

3. If very sick patient in ICU without hemodynamic monitoring, then every 4-6 hours.

causes of a bnp that does not fall during hospitalization
Causes of a BNP that does not Fall During Hospitalization
  • May be the patients “dry” BNP level. Usually NYHA IV with poor prognosis.
  • Another superimposed condition, e.g. pulmonary embolus.
  • Azotemia may down-regulate BNP clearance receptors
  • Diuresis may mobilize third space fluid, rather than lowering wedge pressure

BNP Results to Evaluate And Treat Heart Failure (BREATH)
  • Study Design
  • 1222 patients, hospitalized, EF<35%, BNP>400 pg/mL
  • Randomized to Control and BNP Guided
  • Outpatient follow-up period up to 12 months
  • Event driven study – 25% event rate in Control group
  • Primary End-Points: All cause mortality, rehospitalization or ER i.v. therapy for worsening heart failure.
  • HF is a major and increasing public health problem.
  • BNP has greatest diagnostic value if <100 pg/ml or >400 pg/ml.
  • Diastolic HF is common, has a considerable mortality and is underdiagnosed; BNP can help.
  • BNP changes with PCWP and is predictive of morbidity and mortality in both HF and MI.
  • Baseline BNP in the ED improves management and outcome.
  • No evidence yet that BNP guidance during hospitalization improves outcome.
