Summary
Brief summary
Primary Objectives

1. Mid Region pro Adrenomedullin (MR-proADM) is superior to BNP for the prognosis of heart
failure (HF) patients and adds incremental value in predicting outcomes for patients
presenting to the Emergency Department (ED) with shortness of breath.

2. Mid Region pro A-Type Natriuretic Peptide (MR-proANP) is non-inferior to BNP for the
diagnosis of HF in patients presenting to the ED with shortness of breath.
