The article discusses a research on the prediction of heart failure mortality within 30 days by brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) concentrations as compared with the model used by D.S. Lee and colleagues in their study which was published in a 2003 issue of the "Journal of the American Medical Association." The study found that BNP concentration and the model used by Lee accurately both predict mortality.
