P013 - BNP as a Predictor of Diuretic Nonadherence in 30-Day Heart Failure Readmissions


The purpose of this investigation was to examine the association between diuretic nonadherence and BNP in those with a 30-day heart failure readmission and further explore the usefulness of BNP as an objective marker for diuretic adherence. Results suggest that variables relating to patient characteristics are not as important as those relating to BNP for predicting diuretic nonadherence. BNP could be useful in identifying patients at risk for diuretic nonadherence and a hospital readmission.
