It is possible that plasma BNP measurement might be to heart failure what glycated haemoglobin measurement is to diabetes mellitus. Indeed, within 12-24 months, BNP testing might become a routine addition to the monitoring of patients with heart failure. In the meantime its main role is in helping to rule out heart failure in patients with new symptoms
