Objectives To detect the copeptin and haemoglobin levels in patients with chronic heart failure.
Methods 72 patients with chronic heart failure as the experimental group, and thirty-nine people without organic disease as the control group. The copeptin and haemoglobin levels were estimated in the experimental group and group.
Results (1) The levels of plasma copeptin in the experimental groupwere significantly higher than that in control group (P < 0.01). The plasma copeptin levels were not increased with the severity of cardiac function classification; (2) The haemoglobin levels were decreased with the severity of cardiac function classification.
Conclusions The levels of plasma copeptin in CHF group were significantly higher than that in control group The highter levels of plasma copeptin and the lower levels of hemoglobin together suggest the serious standard of CHF.
