Authors' recomendations: The following conclusions were drawn from the examination of 1 RCT comparing nesiritide versus nitroglycerin as part of the addendum to the rapid review:  Based on moderate quality of evidence, there was no statistically significant difference in renal function biomarkers (at baseline, 24 hours, 48 hours, and discharge) among patients who received nesiritide versus nitroglycerin.  Based on low quality of evidence, there was no statistically significant difference in mortality (at 3 or 6 months post-discharge) among patients who received nesiritide versus nitroglycerin.
