Heart Failure Detection Study

Clinical trial evaluating the validity of a current blood test in the diagnosis of heart failure in adults

Qualified participants will undergo a single blood draw.

Our physicians at Eastside Research Associates have partnered with a sponsor to evaluate the validity of the American Heart Association's current guidelines for B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) blood levels as an indicator of heart failure.

A B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) test gives your provider information about how your heart is working. This blood test measures the levels of a protein called BNP in your bloodstream. When your heart has to work harder to pump blood, it makes more BNP. Higher levels of BNP can be a sign of heart failure.

The study will involve a single blood draw and the entire appointment will last approximately 45 - 60 minutes.

Participants enrolled in this new clinical research study will be compensated for their time.
