CHF manifestation is characterised by several low-sensitivity and low-specific signs and symptoms, forming clinical syndromes of CHF. Experts from ESC and ACC / AHA analysed clinical, laboratory and instrumental signs of CHF, and recommend to use a number of clinical and laboratory methods for the most early diagnosis. Measurement of brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) and / or N-terminal brain natriuretic propeptide (NT-proBNP) levels, as well as tissue Doppler echocardiography (TVI) allows to detect CHF on early stages of CHF development. The level of BNP and / or NT-proBNP is highly specific and highly sensitive indicators of LV overload. In turn, measurment of local contractility in TVI mode allows to detect CHF on asymptomatic stage of development. TVI Q-mode asseses not only global, but also local myocardial contractility and relaxation, and provides more precise objective and quantitative evaluation of these parameters. Many cohort studies confirm the high specificity and sensitivity of BNP, NT-proBNP level and TVI analysis on early stages of CHF.
