Table 2 Characteristics of the different groups divided based on median BNP and median proteinuria

From: Increased B-type natriuretic peptide and decreased proteinuria might reflect decreased capillary leakage and is associated with a better outcome in patients with severe burns

  High BNP, low prot (n= 7) Low BNP, low prot (n= 12) High BNP, high prot (n= 12) Low BNP, high prot (n= 7)
