Natriuretic Peptide Levels and Early Respiratory Adverse Outcome in Cardiac Surgery: A Short Review of the Literature

Abstract

 Natriuretic Peptide Levels and Early Respiratory Adverse Outcome in Cardiac Surgery: A Short Review of the Literature

B-type natriuretic peptide and N-terminal pro-Btype natriuretic peptide are significant biomarkers for predicting outcome among cardiac surgery patients. Their elevated levels have been strongly associated with increased mortality, prolonged intensive care unit stay and postoperative onset of atrial fibrillation. However, early respiratory morbidity indexes have not been long studied..
