Brain natriuretic peptide in term pregnancy
Reproductive Sciences, 05/16/2012
Yurteri–Kaplan L et al. – Brain natriuretic peptide values found in term pregnant patients are similar to those of prepregnant women of reproductive age. Brain natriuretic peptide levels appear to be set by conditions present in the prepregnant condition and maintained, despite changes in plasma volume, systemic vascular resistance, and cardiac output.
