This study aimed to explore the adequate hydration with nitrates for patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and congestive heart failure (CHF) to reduce the risk of contrast-induced nephropathy (CIN) and at the same time avoid the acute heart failure.
Treatment targeted to achieve reduction in N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) improves outcomes in human congestive heart failure (CHF) patients.
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...
Despite evidence that effective family support improves health behaviour and outcomes, the nature of the correlation between congestive heart failure (CHF) outcome and caregiver contribution has not been well studied.
Technology provides an opportunity to develop innovations to improve the way we teach. Developing educational innovations must be approached in a methodical and thorough manner to identify the educational gap and validate the innovation's success in filling the gap. A successful educational innovation requires a stepwise approach that includes needs assessment, design of intervention, testing and analysis, evaluation of intervention, and determination of learning retention.
Pulmonary embolism (PE) is associated with a higher mortality rate in patients with congestive heart failure (CHF) than in those without heart failure. The purpose of this study was to evaluate if inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement provides any mortality benefit in patients admitted with CHF and PE.
Worsening renal function during decongestion among patients hospitalized for heart failure: Findings from the Evaluation Study of Congestive Heart Failure and Pulmonary Artery Catheterization Effectiveness (ESCAPE) trial.
Worsening renal function (WRF) can occur throughout a hospitalization for acute heart failure (HF). However, decongestion can be measured in different ways and the prognostic implications of WRF in the setting of different measures of decongestion are unclear.
Reduction of renal blood flow (RBF) is commonly thought to be a causative factor of renal dysfunction in congestive heart failure (CHF), but the exact mechanism of the renal hypoperfusion is not clear. Apart from the activation of neurohormonal systems controlling intrarenal vascular tone, the cause might be altered reactivity of the renal vasculature to endogenous vasoactive agents.
The diagnosis of congestive heart failure (CHF) in cats is challenging. Point-of-care (POC) thoracic ultrasound and NT-proBNP testing are emerging tools that may aid in diagnosis.
Although abnormalities in reflex sympathetic neural function represent a hallmark of heart failure, no information is available on the neuroadrenergic and baroreflex function in heart failure with preserved, midrange and reduced ejection fraction. The current study was designed to assess muscle sympathetic nerve traffic (MSNA) and baroreflex function in the clinical classes of heart failure defined by the new European Society of Cardiology/American College of Cardiology Foundation/American Heart Association...
To measure competition amongst providers and to examine whether a correlation exists with hospitals mortality for congestive heart failure (CHF), acute myocardial infarction (AMI), isolated-coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) or valve surgery.
Heart transplantation has been shown to be a safe and effective intervention for progressive cardiomyopathy from chronic Chagas disease. However, in the presence of the immunosuppression required for heart transplantation, the likelihood of Chagas disease reactivation is significant. Reactivation may cause myocarditis resulting in allograft dysfunction and the rapid onset of congestive heart failure. Reactivation rates have been well documented in Latin America; however, there is a paucity of data regarding...
To evaluate the effects of an educational board game on heart failure (HF) patients' knowledge and self-care behavior.
We performed a systematic review of the literature to analyze the effect on readmission rates of multifactorial educational interventions at the moment of discharge from the hospital and telephone follow up for patients with heart failure. The quality of reports was analyzed using the CONSORT verification list and the GRADE guide. Using Rev Manager 5.3, the relative risk heterogeneity (RR) of readmission was assessed using I2 and Q statistics, and those considered as homogeneous were combined into a single ...
In patients with refractory heart failure (HF) peritoneal dialysis (PD) is associated with improved functional status and decrease in hospitalization. However, previous studies did not focus on right ventricular dysfunction as an important pathophysiologic component of cardiorenal syndrome.
Self-care is vital for the successful management of heart failure. Mobile health can enable patients with heart failure to perform effective self-care. This article describes the theory-guided development and beta testing of a mobile application intervention to support self-care and increase symptom awareness in community-dwelling patients with heart failure. Ten participants entered physiologic data, answered qualitative questions about symptoms, and reviewed heart failure education within the HF App daily...
A 53-year-old African man with a 25-year history of uncontrolled hypertension and systolic heart failure presented with an acute congestive heart failure exacerbation. He was found to have severe hypokalaemia, so additional testing was performed, and primary aldosteronism was confirmed. CT scan showed a 1.2×2.4 cm well-defined, homogeneous adenoma of the left adrenal gland. Adrenal vein sampling confirmed unilateral primary aldosteronism with lateralisation to the left adrenal gland. The patient was star...
Long-term data on outcomes of participants hospitalized with heart failure (HF) from low and middle-income countries are limited.
To explore the effect of hyperuricemia on prognosis in patients with heart failure of coronary heart disease (CHD) after revascularization. A single-center retrospective study of all subjects who underwent percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) or coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) as revascularization for CHD at Beijing Anzhen Hospital, Capital Medical University, between January 2005 and December 2014 was performed.Patients were divided into two groups by with or without hyperuricemia.The average f...
The primary aim of the TRIAGE-HF trial was to correlate cardiac implantable electronic device-generated heart failure risk status (HFRS) with signs, symptoms, and patient behaviours classically associated with worsening heart failure (HF).
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...
Limited data exist on whether outcomes of patients with heart failure (HF) undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) have improved over time. The purpose of this study was to assess temporal trends in patient characteristics, treatment and outcomes of patients with HF undergoing PCI.
Patients with heart failure (HF) remain at high risk for future events despite medical and device therapy. Dietary sodium reduction is often recommended based on limited evidence. However, it is not known whether dietary sodium reduction reduces the morbidity or mortality associated with HF.
Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation is a technique indicated in cases of severe respiratory failure or in situations where pump failure or heart failure is refractory to conventional medical treatment. Our goal was to describe the results of a patient with chronic Chagas dilated cardiomyopathy treated with extracorporeal membrane oxygenation as bridging therapy for heart transplantation.
