The purpose of this study is to evaluate the capacity of some novels biomarkers Procalcitonin (PCT), Midregional Proadrenomedullin (MR pro ADM), Midregional pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (MR pro ANP), Copeptin (CT pro arginine vasopressin), Pro endothelin to stratify the risk in severe dyspnea.

Further study details as provided by ThermoFisher Scientific Brahms Biomarkers France:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • prognostic value of PCT, MR proADM, Mr pro ANP, Copeptin and pro endothelin in SOB [ Time Frame: at Day 30 ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    all cause mortality or Intensive Care Unit(ICU) admission from inclusion to Day 30

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • establish the diagnostic value of PCT and MR pro ANP [ Time Frame: at admission ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Confirm the diagnostic value of PCT and it's level in sepsis and MR pro ANP in Heart failure

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples Without DNA

Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Acute dyspnea in ED
Acute severe shortness of breath (SOB) in emergency Department (ED) with suspicion of acute heart failure (AHF) or Pulmonary Embolism (PE)or Community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) or acute Exacerbation of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (AE COPD)
Other: Prognostic value of Biomarkers
Mr pro ADM, Mr pro ANP, PCT, Copeptin and pro endothelin value to stratify the risk in SOB patients
Other Names:
  • Dyspnea
  • Prognostic value

Detailed Description:

In emergency department shortness of breath (SOB)is a common symptom and its cause is not easy to be identified. The risk stratifying remains a challenge, Prognostic value of biomarkers might be helpful.
