Basic Metabolic Panel (BMP)
The basic metabolic panel (BMP) is used to check the status of a person’s kidneys and their electrolyte and acid/base balance, as well as their blood glucose level – all of which are related to a person’s metabolism. It can also be used to monitor hospitalized patients and people with certain known conditions, such as hypertension and hypokalemia.
Results of the tests that are part of the BMP are typically evaluated together to look for patterns of results. A single abnormal test result may mean something different than if several test results are abnormal.
