Plasma copeptin levels and prediction of outcome in heart failure outpatients: relation to hyponatremia and loop diuretic doses
Journal of Cardiac Failure, 05/21/2012
Balling L et al. – Plasma copeptin levels predict mortality in outpatients with chronic heart failure independently from clinical variables, plasma sodium, and loop diuretic doses. Furthermore, copeptin predicts the combined end point of hospitalization or death independently from NT–proBNP.
