Twice daily basic metabolic panel's or labs are common practice at Vanderbilt University Medical Center. However, it is unclear how often the second BMP each day is acted on. the investigators project aims to answer a few fundamental questions about the need for twice daily labs in patients hospitalized with acute/subacute-decompensated congestive heart failure who are being actively diuresed.

Obesity is a major risk factor for Heart Failure. During this study, we will define the metabolic profile (energy usage) of the heart in the population of obesity related heart failure. ...
Heart failure is a condition where the heart does not pump enough blood to the rest of the body. People with heart failure may have another condition called the "metabolic syndrome"( havin...
Chronic Heart Failure Analysis and Registry in the Tohoku District 2 (CHART-2 Study) is a large, prospective, hospital-based cohort study to investigate the following: - Characteristic...
The purpose of the research is to help researchers understand changes in metabolism in patients that develop heart failure.
The primary objective of this study is to evaluate whether metabolic modulation improves hemodynamics and outcome in acute heart failure
To determine the metabolic adaptations to compensated heart failure using a reproducible model of myocardial infarction and an unbiased metabolic screen. To address the limitations in sample availabil...
Early detection of heart failure is important for timely treatment. During the development of heart failure, adaptive intracellular metabolic processes that evolve prior to macro-anatomic remodelling,...
Heart failure hospitalization is a sentinel event associated with increased mortality risk. Whether long-term heart failure risk models such as the Seattle Heart Failure Model (SHFM) accurately assess...
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...
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 provinc...
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.
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.
Agents that have a strengthening effect on the heart or that can increase cardiac output. They may be CARDIAC GLYCOSIDES; SYMPATHOMIMETICS; or other drugs. They are used after MYOCARDIAL INFARCT; CARDIAC SURGICAL PROCEDURES; in SHOCK; or in congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).
