Abstract

With patients referred to emergency departments (EDs) for acute dyspnea, emergency physicians should consider all possible diagnoses and assess patients' risk stratification. Copeptin has been shown to have prognostic power for subsequent events, such as death and rehospitalization in patients admitted for dyspnea. The aim of this study was to investigate prognostic role of copeptin variations during hospitalization in patients admitted for dyspnea.
