Congestion is a marker of adverse prognosis in patients with heart failure (HF). In addition to brain natriuretic peptide (BNP), estimated plasma volume status (ePVS), bioimpedance vector analysis (BI...
Some patients with heart failure (HF) are more prone to systemic congestion than others. The goal of this study was to identify clinical and humoral factors linked to congestion and its prognostic imp...
Although congestion is considered to be the main reason for hospital admission in patients with acute heart failure, a simplistic view considering idro saline retention and total body volume accumulat...
Outpatient monitoring and management of patients with heart failure (HF) reduces hospitalizations and healthcare costs. However, the availability of non-invasive approaches to assess congestion are li...
This review highlights recent advances in the diagnosis and management of children with heart failure. We emphasize the clinical approach to patient care in the areas of acute decompensated heart fail...
The AHF-CORE study is a prospective, non-randomized, multicenter regional study. The main objective of the AHF-CORE study is to identify congestion markers (clinical, biological and ultra...
The aim of this study is to investigate whether the objective measurement of fluid overload by bioimpedance analysis (Body Composition Monitor-BCM) in patient with chronic heart failure wo...
Heart failure often causes fluid to accumulate in the body, leading to congestion and swelling. However, some people who have had heart failure for a long time seem to have very little con...
The purpose of this study is to determine how electrical impedance is modified in relation to extracellular space body fluid retention detected by an electrical bioimpedance method in pat...
This is a prospective, multi-center, single-arm study enrolling adult patients who have been hospitalized for heart failure and subsequently discharged. For the duration of study participa...
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.
The evaluation of incidents involving the loss of function of a device. These evaluations are used for a variety of purposes such as to determine the failure rates, the causes of failures, costs of failures, and the reliability and maintainability of devices.
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.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial relaxation during DIASTOLE leading to defective cardiac filling.
Heart failure caused by abnormal myocardial contraction during SYSTOLE leading to defective cardiac emptying.
