More Information about the NT-proBNP Test Kit


NT-proBNP Test Kit is a rapid chromatographic immunoassay used for determining NT-proBNP in human blood, plasma or serum. The NT-proBNP Test Kit is primarily used to detect heart failure or congestive heart failure (CHF). The test kit uses a combination of anti-NT-proBNP antibody-coated particles that detect NT-proBNP quantitatively from them specimen of whole blood, serum or plasma. The minimum detection level of the test kit is 0.45 ng/ml. A colored line will appear in the test line region when sufficient level of NT-proBNP is detected, indicating a positive result. The color of the line can appear to be more intense depending on the concentration of NT-proBNp. No line in the test line region indicates a negative result. A control line should always be present if the test was working appropriately.

AccuQuik™ promotes the use of NT-proBNP Test Kit.

The Disease

NT-proBNP

NT-proBNP or the N-terminal -pro hormone B-type natriuretic peptide is a prohormones with a 76 amino acid N-terminal inactive protein that is activate to release brain natriuretic peptide (BNP). The BNP is a hormone produced by the heart and released by cardiomyocytes in heart ventricles when the ventricular blood volume is increased. BNP decreases systemic vascular resistance and central venous pressure and natriuresis are increased. The levels of BNP and NT-proBNP in the blood can be used to determine acute congestive heart failure and the prognosis of heart failure. Patients with symptomatic and asymptomatic left-ventricular dysfunction tend to have higher levels of BNP and NT-proBNP. They are also associated with coronary artery disease and myocardial ischemia.

Treatments

Heart failure is a chronic disease that needs a lifelong care. Treatment is usually given to improve signs of symptoms of heart failure, helping the patient to live longer and reducing the risk of sudden death. Medications are often prescribed depending on the symptoms, they can be prescribed one at a time or in combinations, namely: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers, beta blockers, diuretics, aldosterone antagonists, inotropes, and digoxin. In some cases, surgery and use of specific medical devices are recommended to treat the underlying problem of the heart failure, such as: Coronary bypass surgery, heart valve repair or replacement, implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs), biventricular pacing, ventricular assist devices, or even heart transplant.

NT-proBNP Test Kit FAQs



When are the symptoms of heart failure?
Signs and symptoms of a heart failure may include: shortness of breath, fatigue and weakness, swelling in the legs, ankles, and feet, rapid or irregular heartbeat, persistent cough with white or pink blood-tinged phlegm, increased need to urinate at night, swelling of the abdomen, rapid weight gain from fluid retention, lack of appetite, decreased alertness, chest pain.
What are the risk factors that cause heart failure?
Heart failure is usually caused by a combination of many risk factors, such as: high blood pressure, coronary artery disease, heart attack, diabetes, certain medications, sleep apnea, congenital heart defects, valvular heart disease, viruses, alcohol or tobacco use, obesity, irregular heartbeats.
How to prevent heart failure?
To prevent heart failure, it is important to reduce or eliminate certain risk factors. Long-term lifestyle changes are key to preventing heart failure, including: not smoking, controlling the condition of high blood pressure or diabetes, staying physically active, eating healthy foods, maintaining a healthy weight, reducing stress.
