BNP-guided diuresis in ventilated patients

In this trial of ventilated patients, those that were randomized to a BNP-guided diuretic regimen had better diuresis and shorter time on the ventilator (by about a half a day) but no difference in length of stay or mortality (compared to usual care). This appears to be a feasible and effective strategy to reduce ventilator time during weaning (abstract).
