Risk of Death With Nesiritide

JAMA. 2005;294(8):897-898. doi:10.1001/jama.294.8.897-a

To the Editor: In their Review of the short-term risk of death after treatment with nesiritide for decompensated heart failure, Dr Sackner-Bernstein and colleagues1 found that the use of nesiritide may be associated with an increased risk of death. However, several factors other than nesiritide use may have significantly influenced their results.
