How to Prevent Heart Failure Readmission by Using Lung Impedance Device (HOPE-HF Study)

2019-09-12 02:34:41 | BioPortfolio


The readmission of Heart Failure (HF) patients for exacerbation HF within 30-day is unmet goal. The mail reason for readmission is excessive accumulation of fluid in patient's lung. According our data (1,2) around 40% of HF patient have excessive lung fluid at discharge from HF hospitalization ("unacceptable" residual congestion on discharge). In other words, around 40% patients are discharged from HF hospitalization prematurely when they are not ready to be discharged. Only 60% of HF patients are discharged from HF admission with "acceptable" level of residual pulmonary congestion (2). There are some techniques to assess "readiness" of HF patients for discharge. Pulmonary congestion (lung fluid accumulation) may be assessed non-invasively by measurement Brain Natriuretic Peptide (BNP), (3,4), by lung ultrasound (LUS), (5-7) and by Lung Impedance (LI) method (1,2). LUS is operator depended technique. LI and BNP techniques are most reliable methods (2) and easy to use.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A semisynthetic digitalis glycoside with the general properties of DIGOXIN but more rapid onset of action. Its cardiotonic action is prolonged by its demethylation to DIGOXIN in the liver. It has been used in the treatment of congestive heart failure (HEART FAILURE).

A cardiotonic glycoside obtained mainly from Digitalis lanata; it consists of three sugars and the aglycone DIGOXIGENIN. Digoxin has positive inotropic and negative chronotropic activity. It is used to control ventricular rate in ATRIAL FIBRILLATION and in the management of congestive heart failure with atrial fibrillation. Its use in congestive heart failure and sinus rhythm is less certain. The margin between toxic and therapeutic doses is small. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p666)

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).

One of the ANGIOTENSIN-CONVERTING ENZYME INHIBITORS (ACE inhibitors), orally active, that has been used in the treatment of hypertension and congestive heart failure.

Objective tests of middle ear function based on the difficulty (impedance) or ease (admittance) of sound flow through the middle ear. These include static impedance and dynamic impedance (i.e., tympanometry and impedance tests in conjunction with intra-aural muscle reflex elicitation). This term is used also for various components of impedance and admittance (e.g., compliance, conductance, reactance, resistance, susceptance).
