Acute Congestive Heart Failure Urgent Care Evaluation

This prospective validation study evaluates the ability of a risk algorithm, which can simultaneously predict the risk of death at 7 days and 30 days for patients with acute heart failure presenting to the emergency department. The risk algorithms for prediction of 7-day (Emergency Heart failure Mortality Risk Grade [EHMRG]) and 30-day mortality (EHMRG30-ST) have been previously derived.

Safety and Efficacy of Direct Blood Volume Measurement in the Treatment of Heart Failure

Heart failure is a common cardiac condition affecting nearly 6 million Americans. Silent blood volume overload is common in patients with heart failure and is associated with increased risk of death. This study is designed to determine if adjustment of therapy based on direct measurement of blood volume will reduce risk of hospitalization and death when compared with therapy based on clinical assessment of blood volume in patients with chronic heart failure.

Identifying High- and Low-Risk Heart Failure Patients in the Emergency Department (The Stratify Study)

People with heart failure (HF) symptoms who are seen in the emergency department (ED) are often admitted to the hospital even though it may not be necessary. This study will gather information from HF patients seen in the ED to develop a decision-making tool that will help doctors predict the risk of HF-related death or serious complications. Improving the ability of ED doctors to effectively and safely manage low-risk HF patients should lead to fewer unnecessary hospitalizati...

Secondary objectives are: - Quantify the variation...

A Study to Evaluate the Effects of EECP in Patients With Heart Failure

The aims of this proposal are to investigate whether external enhanced counterpulsation (EECP) can facilitate heart failure (HF) patient weaning from intravenous infusion of positive inotropic agent, and thus decrease the length of hospital stay. The major adverse cardiovascular event (MACE) rate, including death and hospitalization for heart failure, will be monitored for 6 months if patients can be released from hospital. Exercise tolerance (6-minute walking distance) and pla...

Curing Atrial Fibrillation in Heart Failure

Heart failure is a condition that occurs when the heart muscle weakens and no longer contracts normally. Half of these patients have an irregularity of heart rhythm called atrial fibrillation (AF). Patients with both heart failure and AF spend more time in hospital, and die earlier than those with heart failure alone. AF is difficult to treat with conventional methods in patients with heart failure. Radiofrequency ablation is a new technique used to cure AF. The investigat...


Treatment of Sleep Disordered Breathing In Acute Decompensated Heart Failure Patients

Heart Failure affects 5-6 million Americans and there are about 550 thousand new cases of heart failure every year. There are approximately 3 million hospital admission for acute decompensated heart failure with hospital readmission rate of 20% at 30 days and 50% at 60 day, costing up to 20 billion dollars per year. In our previous study we have discovered that sleep disordered breathing is prevalent in 70% of patients with acute decompensated heart failure. We hypothesize that...

Sildenafil for the Prevention of Right Heart Failure Following LVAD Implantation

Continuous-flow left ventricular assist devices (LVAD) move blood from the left ventricle (the largest chamber of the heart) to the aorta (the body's main artery) to help the heart better meet the needs of the body and to improve survival for patients with advanced heart failure (HF). The ability of the right ventricle (the large chamber on the right side of the heart) to keep up with the improved blood flow following LVAD greatly effects how well a person does following surger...

Heart Failure Recorded in Primary Care, Hospital Admissions and National Mortality Registry

The main objectives of this study are i) to assess how heart failure was captured accross different linked electronic health record sources within the CALIBER program and the overlap between primary care, hospital admissions and/or the national mortality register, and ii) to assess risk factors, heart failure treatment and survival in patients, stratified by EHR source.

CRUSH STUDY: Calculating Readmission Risk by Ultrasound for Heart Failure Failure Study

This is a study to determine if two ultrasound measures (Corrected Flow Time and B-Lines) can predict patients at higher risk of readmission within 30 days of hospital discharge for decompensated heart failure.

Patient Journey in Hospital With Heart Failure in Turkish Population

The purpose of this study is to compose a national database of the etiologies, clinical and demographic characteristics, using diagnostic tests, precipitating and risk factors, management of from intensive care unit or coronary care unit to hospital discharge, length of stay in the intensive care unit and hospital, in-hospital mortality and discharge medications of hospitalized acute heart failure patients in Turkish population.

Optimised Pacing Program

Permanent pacemakers are a common treatment for slow heart beats. In the UK 300,000 people have a pacemaker, and each year another 36,000 receive them. All of these patients are usually seen yearly to have their device checked. However, pacemaker technology is now very reliable, batteries last well over 5 years, and many patients require their pacemaker only occasionally as a back-up. Each visit costs around £200 such that pacemaker follow-up cost the NHS around £50million pe...

The Early High Risk Period for Patients With Heart Failure

Many people with heart failure either die or are admitted to the hospital in the first few months after the condition is diagnosed. The reasons for this are currently unclear- but may be due to worsening heart failure or other medical conditions such as angina, heart attack or sudden electrical problems of the heart. The investigators propose to recruit and follow-up 450 people, with a new diagnosis of heart failure for a minimum of six months in a multi-centre observational ...

Comparison of Outcomes and Access to Care for Heart Failure Trial

Heart failure is a condition where the heart pump does not function normally causing the lungs to become congested. The primary symptom of heart failure is shortness of breath, and this often leads to patients visiting the emergency department for care. Decision-making in the emergency department is a high-stakes situation, where there is a need for decision support to guide clinicians to make better decisions about admission to hospital or discharge home. Many low-risk patient...

A Study to Assess the Effectiveness and Safety of Rivaroxaban in Reducing the Risk of Death, Myocardial Infarction or Stroke in Participants With Heart Failure and Coronary Artery Disease Following an Episode of Decompensated Heart Failure

The purpose of this study is to assess the effectiveness and safety of rivaroxaban compared with placebo (inactive medication), in reducing the risk of death, myocardial infarction or stroke in participants with heart failure and significant coronary artery disease following an episode of decompensated heart failure.

Aldosterone bloCkade for Health Improvement EValuation in End-stage Renal Disease

Individuals receiving dialysis are at risk of heart failure and heart related death. There is an urgent need for treatments that reduce the risk of these problems in patients that require dialysis. Spironolactone is a pill used to prevent heart failure and related deaths in patients that do not require dialysis. It works by blocking a hormone (aldosterone) in your body that causes high blood pressure and can damage the heart. Although spironolactone is very effective in ...
