The growing popularity of BNP testing is a testimony to its usefulness for diagnosing and managing patients with congestive heart failure. The algorithms in this article are based on the most-up-to-date evidence-based medicine we have intermingled with clinical judgement of someone who has used BNP testing since its inception.
