Correlation between Plasma B-Type Natriuretic Peptide and Haemoglobin Level in Acute Heart Failure

Steffy Dominic | Angel Jose [2] | Stigi Joseph [2]


Abstract: BNP (Brain natriuretic Peptide) is inversely related to Hb (Haemoglobin) in acute heart failurepatients. In this study also BNP is inversely proportionate to Hb. Aim: To assess the correlation between plasma B-type natriuretic peptide and haemoglobin level in acute heart failure patients. Method: Observational cross - sectional study was conducted in 86 patients those who are admitted with acute heart failure in Little flower hospital, Angamaly, Ernakulam, Kerala. Haemoglobin level and BNP level as clinical and demographic information were collected. Descriptive analysis was used to analyse the collected data by qualitative variables and quantitative variables. Mean and standerd according to the normality of the data they have an spearman correlation coefficient for the assessment of correlation between outcome variable. All data entered in Excel analysed using IBI sample size version 1.01. Results: In 86 patients both haemoglobin levels and BNP values were analysed to clarify the relationship of these markers. BNP level were significantly inversely related with haemoglobin concentration. (R = - 0.594, p<0.0001). Multiple variable analysis revealed that decreased Hb was one of independent predictors for the BNP. Conclusion: The combination of haemoglobin and high BNP level may deteriorate the prognosis of the first acute heart failure patients.
