Longitudinal changes of brain-type natriuretic peptide in preterm neonates
Ductus Arteriosus, Patent
Natriuretic Peptide, Brain
Similar to term infants, brain-type natriuretic peptide levels of preterm infants are related to the chronological age and decline during the first month of life. Rapid bedside Triage brain-type natriuretic peptide is a potentially valuable and practical assay in determining the hemodynamic changes in preterm infants.
