Carperitide (alpha-human atrial natriuretic peptide) improves systemic hemodynamics in patients with heart failure through a vasodilatory action, a natriuretic action, and inhibition of th...
The purpose of this prospective, non-randomized, single-arm, research study is to evaluate the accuracy of acutely extracting respiratory rate and tidal volume from implanted cardiac devic...
Hypokalemia is very common in heart failure patients. Deleterious effects have been report on the cardiovascular system. Most of the clinical data concerning this ionic trouble are based o...
The purpose of the READ study is to compare the continuation of the cardiac rehabilitation at home with clinical follow-up, therapeutic education, and advice on the training at the stamina...
The bioreactance technique is a relatively new, totally non-invasive technique used to measure cardiac output that is easy to use. Non Invasive Cardiac Output Monitor (NICOM) is one such system (Cheet...
Despite medical advancements, the prognosis of patients with heart failure remains poor. While echocardiography and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging remain at the forefront of diagnosing and monitor...
The population of patients with heart failure continues to grow, which introduced significant challenges in clinical practice related to the management of cardiac arrhythmia and advanced heart failure...
Obesity is associated with high rates of cardiac fatty acid oxidation, low rates of glucose oxidation, cardiac hypertrophy, and heart failure. Whether weight loss can lessen the severity of heart fail...
Transthyretin amyloidosis cardiomyopathy (ATTR-CM) is an underappreciated cause of heart failure that results from misfolded TTR (prealbumin) protein. Diflunisal is an approved non-steroidal anti-infl...
Application of a life support system that circulates the blood through an oxygenating system, which may consist of a pump, a membrane oxygenator, and a heat exchanger. Examples of its use are to assist victims of smoke inhalation injury, respiratory failure, and cardiac failure.
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).
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.
A state of elevated cardiac output due to conditions of either increased hemodynamic demand or reduced cardiac oxygen output. These conditions may include ANEMIA; ARTERIOVENOUS FISTULA; THYROTOXICOSIS; PREGNANCY; EXERCISE; FEVER; and ANOXIA. In time, compensatory changes of the heart can lead to pathological form of high cardiac output and eventual HEART FAILURE.
Tumors in any part of the heart. They include primary cardiac tumors and metastatic tumors to the heart. Their interference with normal cardiac functions can cause a wide variety of symptoms including HEART FAILURE; CARDIAC ARRHYTHMIAS; or EMBOLISM.
