    It's used to determine ventricular dysfunction in decompensated heart failure. Levels <100 means there is probably no ventricular dysfunction, and levels >500 means there probably is. Anything in between is usually meaningless.

    That's my understanding, but others may have more to add. Great question, by the way!
