Compression Stockings as Adjuvant Therapy in Management of Acute Systolic Heart Failure

2019-09-24 05:27:27 | BioPortfolio

Summary

There will be two populations in this study: control group, and intervention group. These groups will undergo propensity matching to account for confounders and minimize selection bias. 100 patients will be enrolled, 50 to each population. The objective of this study is: assess the utility of lower extremity compression wraps as adjuvant therapy in inpatient management of acute systolic heart failure

The control group will consist of patients admitted to I5 Cardiology for management of acute systolic heart failure with intravenous diuresis and standard medical therapy, meeting inclusion criteria. Information will be gathered through observational prospective data analysis from Epic EMR, and will include daily diuretic type and dose required, daily urine output, daily creatinine, total days of admission, daily and pre-discharge weight, admission BNP, and pre-discharge BNP.

The intervention group will consist of patients admitted to I5 Cardiology meeting inclusion criteria and being managed with standard medical therapy. This group will receive additional therapy using bilateral lower extremity compression wraps applied by nursing staff per pre-set protocol, and will receive education on the use of compression wraps. Patients will be instructed to wear the compression wraps for the entirety of the time they are undergoing intravenous diuresis, with pauses in care as needed for hygiene and symptom relief purposes. During the time of compression wrap application, the following data will be collected: urine output, daily weights, daily creatinine, daily and total dose and type of intravenous diuretic used. Prior to discharge, a BNP will be obtained.

Endpoints (including percentage of weight reduction, total urine output achieved with diuresis, total dose requirement and type of intravenous diuresis, total days of intravenous diuresis, days to discharge, discharge BNP, and percent reduction from admission BNP) will then be compared to assess the utility of adding lower extremity compression wraps to inpatient management of acute systolic heart failure.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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).
