The recognition of fluid retention is critical in treating heart failure (HF). Bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a well-known noninvasive method; however, data on its role in managing patients with congenital heart disease (CHD) are limited. Here, we aimed to clarify the correlation between BIA and HF severity as well as the prognostic value of BIA in adult patients with CHD.
Studies have shown that higher body mass index is associated with improved prognosis in heart failure, and this is often termed the obesity paradox.
Congestion in acute heart failure (AHF) affects survival curves and hospital length of stay (LOS). The evaluation of congestion, however, is not totally objective. The aim of this study was to verify the accuracy of bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) in predicting the LOS in AHF patients.
BMI is the most commonly used indicator to evaluate overweight and obesity, but it cannot distinguish changes in body composition. Over recent years, it has been demonstrated that bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) is a more accurate method for analyzing body composition. Bioelectrical impedance vector analysis (BIVA) has revealed its effectiveness as an indicator of nutritional status and hydration.
Bioelectrical impedance analysis is a valuable method for estimating fat-free mass (FFM) and fat mass (FM) in COPD patients by means of specific predictive equations. In addition, raw BIA variables such as high to low frequency impedance ratios (IRs) and phase angle, most likely as a result of providing information on muscle quality, have been related to disease severity and mortality in patients suffering from several diseases, but never in COPD. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive role...
To investigate the validity of an eight-contact electrode bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA) system within a household scale for assessing whole body composition in COPD patients.
Remote monitoring by implantable devices substantially improves management of heart failure (HF) patients by providing diagnostic day-to-day data. The use of thoracic impedance (TI) as a surrogate measure of fluid accumulation is still strongly debated. The multicenter HomeCARE-II study evaluated clinically apparent HF events in the context of remote device diagnostics, focusing on the controversial role of TI.
Heart failure (HF) in the adult with congenital heart disease (ACHD) is associated with high morbidity and mortality and has been implicated as the leading cause of death in this patient population. The diagnosis of HF in ACHD involves a combination of clinical suspicion from subjective patient history, anatomic imaging, functional diagnostic studies, and rhythm evaluation. Once diagnosed, the approach to management of HF in this population varies widely and by lesion. Unfortunately, there is a paucity of l...
Heart failure appears in 2% of the adult population in Europe. One in five people aged 40 years will develop heart failure during their lifetime. Heart failure touch 20,000 people in the Opole province. Heart failure is the second, after acute coronary syndromes, urgent cause of admissions to the Clinic of Cardiology at the University Hospital in Opole. The paper presents the prognosis of hospitalization of patients with heart failure for the years 2015-2050 taking into account the processes of depopulation...
This study performed a retrospective outcome analyses of a large cohort of mixed ejection fraction patients admitted for acute heart failure (HF), whose inpatient care was guided by individual quantitative blood volume analysis (BVA) results.
BACKGROUND This study aimed at evaluating the diagnostic and outcome prediction value of transthoracic impedance cardiography (ICG) in heart failure (HF) patients admitted for in-hospital treatment due to flare-ups of their condition. MATERIAL AND METHODS In total, 120 patients of intensive care units who were admitted due to HF flare-ups were involved to the study. The findings of ICG were compared to data obtained by other methods used for diagnosing HF. RESULTS Statistically significant (p
Can vaginal bioelectrical impedance (VZ) electrophysiologically determine alterations of the endometrium in preparation for implantation?
This study was aimed to evaluate the changes of impedance parameters of patients who were admitted to a long-term care hospital by measuring bioelectrical impedance. The subjects were 18 patients who had infusion therapy through peripheral intravenous (IV) catheters and had at least an infiltration. The impedance parameters were measured with a multi-channel impedance measuring instrument (Vector Impedance Meter) twice; at starting IV infusion after catheter insertion and infiltration detected. As results, ...
Although lymphedema is fundamentally abnormal accumulation of excess water in the extracellular space, previous studies have evaluated the efficacy of physiological bypass surgery (lymphaticovenular anastomosis [LVA]) for lymphedema without measuring water volume. This study clarified the water reductive effect of LVA using bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA).
We sought to analyze the trends and resource utilization of adult congenital heart disease (ACHD)-related heart failure admissions at children's hospitals. Heart failure admissions in patients with ACHD continue to rise at both pediatric and adult care facilities. Data from the Pediatric Health Information Systems database (2005 to 2015) were used to identify patients (≥18 years) admitted with congenital heart disease (745.xx-747.xx) and principal diagnosis of heart failure (428.xx). High resource use (HR...
Heart failure or congestive heart failure remains a major public health concern on the global scale. End-stage heart failure is a severe disease where the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen and nutrients to other tissues and organs of the body. When the lines of treatment of heart failure such as lifestyle adjustments, medical management, and device therapy fail, a patient may be deemed a candidate for heart transplantation. This article reviews the history of heart transplantation, complications post-he...
Nowadays, heart failure (HF) related morbidity and mortality rate is increasing globally. Younger populations happen to be more affected by HF in sub- Saharan African than the western countries. Even though medications, low sodium diet, regular exercise, and weight monitoring are essential to control heart failure symptoms and its exacerbation, poor adherence to these self-care recommendations is contributing to an increased in hospitalization, morbidity, and mortality. Therefore, this study aimed to assess...
Despite the progress in the management of patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD), a significant proportion of patients still develop pulmonary hypertension (PH). We aimed to highlight the rate of the complications in PH-ACHD and the predicting factors of cumulative mortality risk in this population.
Influenza infection is associated with increased risk for mortality and hospitalization in heart failure patients. Although there are no published randomized controlled trials examining the effect of influenza vaccination on clinical outcomes in heart failure patients, the effect has been examined in observational cohort studies. Nevertheless, results are inconsistent due partly to limited power with small sample sizes and use of different definitions of outcomes. We therefore aimed to conduct a systematic ...
Heart failure remains an ultimately fatal condition that causes significant symptoms as it progresses. The involvement by palliative services in this patient group has been suboptimal despite many years of guidance from international cardiac societies who recommend a palliative focus for these patients. At Hutt hospital, we have implemented a cardiology supportive care clinic in an attempt to improve the care of our advanced heart failure patients. Our initial experience is that the clinic has resulted in i...
Telemedical Interventional Management in Heart Failure II (TIM-HF2), a randomised, controlled trial investigating the impact of telemedicine on unplanned cardiovascular hospitalisations and mortality in heart failure patients: study design and description of the intervention.
Heart failure (HF) is a complex, chronic condition that is associated with debilitating symptoms, all of which necessitate close follow-up by health care providers. Lack of disease monitoring may result in increased mortality and more frequent hospital readmissions for decompensated HF. Remote patient management (RPM) in this patient population may help to detect early signs and symptoms of cardiac decompensation, thus enabling a prompt initiation of the appropriate treatment and care before a manifestation...
Heart transplantation is the gold standard treatment for advanced heart failure. Left ventricular assist devices (LVADs), despite being a good option for these patients, are not quite available in developing countries. Time spent in heart transplant waiting list has increased lately even in regions where the number of transplants has also risen showing that a new strategy should be sought.
SUPPORT-HF 2 tests the hypothesis that home monitoring with information technology-supported specialist management is more effective in optimizing medical therapy than is home monitoring alone for patients with heart failure.
Disease management programs (DMP) may reduce short-term readmission or death after heart failure (HF) hospitalization. We sought to determine if targeting of DMP to the highest risk patients could improve efficiency.
Soluble suppression of tumorogenicity 2 (sST2) has been shown to be of prognostic value in patients with chronic and acute left heart failure. The present study aims to assess the predictive value of sST2 levels in adult patients with complex congenital heart disease (CHD).
