Early diagnosis for PPCM- Peripartum Cardiomyopathy, Preeclampsia, Cancer, Dementia & Alzheimer...
(PPCM) Peripartum Cardiomyopathy is a pregnancy-induced heart failure that weakens the heart muscle & begins during the final month of pregnancy & peaks 4 to 6 weeks after giving birth.
PPCM Fund Inc. is a 501c3 nonprofit organization founded by PPCM survivors are dedicated to saving unsuspecting mothers and their families from Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. We spread awareness in order to save lives! PPCM is a *preventable pregnancy induced heart failure; a relatively unknown yet deadly heart disease surrounding new mothers. We are on a mission to implement systems, spread awareness globally, further research & aid in the prevention of Peripartum Cardiomyopathy. Most have not heard of PPCM, including the majority birthing & medical professionals we've encountered, unfortunately.
A key part of our mission is to raise the standards for screening, standard tests, & lab-work;
with implementation both during and after pregnancy.
The NT- Pro BNP test is a pregnancy blood test screening that can hopefully catch a pregnancy-related heart failure condition called Peripartum Cardiomyopathy early enough and help decrease the maternal mortality - morbidity rate.
This test can save moms which in turn save families.
"The B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) test is a blood test that measures levels of a protein called BPN that is made by your heart and blood vessels. BNP levels are higher than normal when you have heart failure."
