Patients suffering from heart failure and a markedly reduced pumping capacity and sometimes desynchronization of the lower chambers of the heart have a higher risk of suffering sudden card...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the potential clinical and economic benefits of using CareLink remote management for pacemaker follow-up. Study Objectives include: 1. To...
The purpose of this study is to compare remote pacemaker follow-up to current standard of care follow-up. The study will compare the rate of first diagnosis of clinically actionable events...
Following product approval, further confirmation of the MR Conditional Tachyarrhythmia Therapy Systems sensing and detection performance post MRI exposure will be obtained by actively moni...
The purpose of this study is to determine the value of diagnostic data obtained from Medtronic implantable cardioverter defibrillators (ICDs) with cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) t...
Poor response to loop diuretic therapy is a marker of risk during acute heart failure hospitalization. We sought to describe baseline determinants of diuretic response and to further explore the relat...
Barriers in heart failure self-care contribute to heart failure hospitalizations, but geographic differences have not been well-studied. We aimed to compare self-care barriers in heart failure patient...
Recognizing the rising prevalence of heart failure in China, patients with heart failure have substantial palliative needs. This review highlights recent evidence on the epidemic of heart failure, ide...
Heart failure is an increasing reason for hospitalization and the leading cause of death in patients with adult congenital heart disease (ACHD). Recently, the European Society of Cardiology and the Am...
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).
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
Cardiology is a specialty of internal medicine. Cardiac electrophysiology : Study of the electrical properties and conduction diseases of the heart. Echocardiography : The use of ultrasound to study the mechanical function/physics of the h...
