NT- proBNP (Screening & Diagnostic)
This test is basically used to identify and gauge the severity of heart failure. Also, this test helps to distinguish heart failure from other conditions like lung disease. Heart tends to produce and release NT-proBNPwhen it is strained and functioning hard to pump blood.
Heart failure is suggested when its higher-than-normal levels are detected.
High-sensitivity C-reactive protein (hs-CRP): Performed to check for risk of cardiovascular disease.
