ABSTRACT
The article reports on the result of the study on the B-type natriuretic peptide (BPN) testing in patients with suspected heart failure. The study suggests that general practitioners would do better relying on their clinical judgment than BNP testing. According to the study, BNP testing performed less well than a risk score based on common signs and symptoms.
