Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Journal of Biomedical InformaticsAuthor(s): Peipei Chen, Wei Dong, Xudong Lu, Uzay Kaymak, Kunlun He, Zhengxing HuangAbstractUtilizing clinical observational data to estimate individualized treatment effects (ITE) is a challenging task, as confounding inevitably exists in clinical data. Most of the existing models for ITE estimation tackle this problem by creating unbiased estimators of the treatment effects. Although valuable, learning a balanced representation is sometimes directly opposed to the objective of learning an effective and discriminative model for ITE ...

Objectives: Rapid fluid resuscitation has become standard in sepsis care, despite “low-quality” evidence and absence of guidelines for populations “at risk” for volume overload. Our objectives include as follows: 1) identify predictors of reaching a 30 mL/kg crystalloid bolus within 3 hours of sepsis onset (30by3); 2) assess the impact of 30by3 and fluid dosing on clinical outcomes; 3) examine differences in perceived “at-risk” volume-sensitive populations, including end-stage renal disease, heart failure, obesity, advanced age, or with documentation of volume “overload&rd...

Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Revista Española de Cardiología (English Edition)Author(s): Samuel D. Slavin, Haider J. WarraichAbstractHeart failure (HF) is a progressive condition with high mortality and heavy symptom burden. Despite guideline recommendations, cardiologists refer to palliative care at rates much lower than other specialties and very late in the course of the disease, often in the final 3 days of life. One reason for delayed referral is that prognostication is challenging in patients with HF, making it unclear when and how the limited resources of specialist palliat...

Recent studies showed that the prevalence of depression in patients with HF is 21.5%. Antidepressants, mainly Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors, are usually prescribed for HF patients diagnosed with depression. Some evidence supports antidepressant’s role in im...

We present the case of an 84-year-old man with chest tightness, dyspnoea, and ascites. He had a history of dyslipidaemia and ischaemic heart disease. Initial investigations showed severe diastolic dysfunction and elevated pulmonary artery systolic pressure on echocardiogram along with elevated serum natriuretic peptides. Further evaluation by a magnetic resonance imaging scan of the heart and endomyocardial biopsy confirmed the diagnosis of senile systemic amyloidosis. He made good progress after treatment with conventional heart failure drugs and is currently under consideration to start on specific medications to slow do...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewMalnutrition, sarcopenia, and cachexia are areas of increasing interest in the management of patients with heart failure (HF). This review aims to examine the serological markers useful in guiding the physician in identification of these patients.Recent FindingsTraditional nutritional biomarkers including albumin/prealbumin, iron, and vitamin D deficiencies predict poor prognosis in malnutrition and HF. Novel biomarkers including ghrelin, myostatin, C-terminal agrin fragment, and adiponectin have been identified as possible substrates and/or therapeutic targets in cardiac patients with sarcopenia a...
