The use of natriuretic peptide testing in clinical practice provides information that may not be obvious at the patient’s bedside. This online seminar discusses the latest clinical application of natriuretic peptides, examining how testing may support clinical judgment, reduce cost, and decrease serious medical events. In addition, this seminar will include an exploration of the relationship between natriuretic peptide levels and guideline-directed medical therapy in the inpatient and outpatient settings.
Key Learning Objectives:
