Question about Heart failureMy hubby has been told his BNP reading was 749 ( MI& 3BYpass2013) had ecg & waiting for perfusion...should we be worried?
The answer depends on a number of things, most importantly his symptoms and ECG findings. An echo cardiogram and perfusion scan should help. He may need an up to date coronary angiogram depending on results.
