Figure 1: Receiver operator characteristic curve (ROC) for preoperative BNP levels and the need for epinephrine and milrinone infusion. BNP level greater than 58.4 pg/ml correlated with the use of epinephrine and milrinone (sensibility = 77.2%, specifi city = 74.3%, accuracy = 76.5%, odds ratio = 10.5, positive predictive value = 88.9%, negative predictive value = 9.09%), with an area under the curve of 0.822. BNP, B-type natriuretic p eptide.
