ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views on a research which finds that N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP)-guided management reduces rehospitalization of heart failure (HF) patients. The author observes that adding NT-proBNP-guided management in HF results in significant reduction in mortality, however, it is still unclear whether measurement of NT-proBNP should become a routine part of HF management.
