Figure 1. From: Diagnostic utility of B-type natriuretic peptide in critically ill patients with pulmonary edema: a prospective cohort study.

Dot-plot of initial B-type natriuretic peptide value classified by edema type. Bold line and whiskers represent mean and ± 1 standard deviation. *, P = 0.05 for the difference in B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels between patients with acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome (ALI/ARDS) and patients with congestive heart failure. There is no difference between patients with ALI and patients with ARDS (P = 0.47).

Figure 2. From: Diagnostic utility of B-type natriuretic peptide in critically ill patients with pulmonary edema: a prospective cohort study.

Receiver operating characteristics of the diagnostic utility of B-type natriuretic peptide. True positives are patients with acute lung injury/acute respiratory distress syndrome, and true negatives are patients with congestive heart failure. Area under curve = 0.67 (95% confidence interval 0.52 to 0.81). The table provides the corresponding sensitivity, specificity, predictive values and likelihood ratios of representative B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) values.

Correlation between B-type natriuretic peptide values and invasive hemodynamic measurements. (a) Baseline B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) and right atrial pressure (RAP) values. (b) Baseline BNP and pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP) values. (c) Change in BNP and RAP values (ΔBNP and ΔRAP, respectively) between day 1 and day 2. (d) Change in BNP and PCWP values (ΔBNP and ΔPCWP, respectively) between day 1 and day 2.
