Hyponatremia in Acute Heart Failure in Relation to Hematocrit Levels: Clinical Relevance and Prognostic Implication.

08:00 EDT 25th July 2018 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Hyponatremia in Acute Heart Failure in Relation to Hematocrit Levels: Clinical Relevance and Prognostic Implication."

Hyponatremia is the most common electrolyte abnormality found in hospitalized patients with acute heart failure (AHF) and is related to poor prognosis. This study sought to evaluate: (1) the different prognostic impact of dilutional versus depletional hyponatremia, evaluating short- and long-term outcome; (2) the relationship between both types of hyponatremia and intravenous furosemide dose, renal function changes, and persistent congestion at discharge.

Hyponatremia is associated with occurrence of atrial fibrillation in outpatients with heart failure and reduced ejection fraction.

Hyponatremia and atrial fibrillation (AF) have been established as strong predictors for worse clinical outcomes for patients with heart failure (HF). However, less is known about the hyponatremia in ...

Prognostic significance of red cell distribution width and its relation to increased pulmonary pressure and inflammation in acute heart failure.

Red cell distribution width (RDW) in acute heart failure (AHF) is accepted as a prognostic indicator with unclear pathophysiological ties. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prognostic value of...

The prognosis of heart failure patients: Does sodium level play a significant role?

Heart failure (HF), a major cardiovascular disorder, remains a grievous clinical condition regardless of advances in medical care. Hyponatremia is classified as a serum sodium concentration of

Renal function and anemia in relation to short- and long-term prognosis of patients with acute heart failure in the period 1985-2008: A clinical cohort study.

Renal dysfunction and anaemia are common in patients with acute heart failure (HF). It is not known whether their combined presence has additive prognostic value. We investigated their prognostic valu...

Prevalence, clinical characteristics and outcomes of valvular atrial fibrillation in a cohort of African patients with acute heart failure: insights from the THESUS-HF registry.

Rheumatic heart disease (RHD) is the commonest cause of valvular heart disease and a common cause of heart failure in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA). Atrial fibrillation (AF) complicates RHD, precipitates a...

Circulating Markers That Underlie the Transition From Compensated Hypertrophy to Heart Failure

The purpose of this research is to determine if two proteins in the blood are increased during acute heart failure. These two proteins are produced when the heart becomes dysfunctional an...

Tolvaptan for Patients With Acute Neurological Injuries

Hyponatremia occurs frequently in patients with acute brain injury in the days to weeks following injury, and may contribute to adverse outcome. In addition, hyponatremia can aggravate neu...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A heterogeneous condition in which the heart is unable to pump out sufficient blood to meet the metabolic need of the body. Heart failure can be caused by structural defects, functional abnormalities (VENTRICULAR DYSFUNCTION), or a sudden overload beyond its capacity. Chronic heart failure is more common than acute heart failure which results from sudden insult to cardiac function, such as MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.

A demyelinating condition affecting the PONS and characterized clinically by an acute progressive QUADRIPLEGIA; DYSARTHRIA; DYSPHAGIA; and alterations of consciousness. Pathologic features include prominent demyelination in the central PONS with sparing of axons and neurons. This condition is usually associated with systemic disorders such as HYPONATREMIA; chronic ALCOHOLISM; LIVER FAILURE; severe BURNS; malignant NEOPLASMS; hemorrhagic PANCREATITIS; HEMODIALYSIS; and SEPSIS. The rapid medical correction of hyponatremia has been cited as a cause of this condition. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1125-6)

Enlargement of the HEART, usually indicated by a cardiothoracic ratio above 0.50. Heart enlargement may involve the right, the left, or both HEART VENTRICLES or HEART ATRIA. Cardiomegaly is a nonspecific symptom seen in patients with chronic systolic heart failure (HEART FAILURE) or several forms of CARDIOMYOPATHIES.

A severe irreversible decline in the ability of kidneys to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal failure, either acute (KIDNEY FAILURE, ACUTE) or chronic (KIDNEY FAILURE, CHRONIC), requires HEMODIALYSIS.

A condition of lung damage that is characterized by bilateral pulmonary infiltrates (PULMONARY EDEMA) rich in NEUTROPHILS, and in the absence of clinical HEART FAILURE. This can represent a spectrum of pulmonary lesions, endothelial and epithelial, due to numerous factors (physical, chemical, or biological).
