Research studies that employ blinded echocardiograms in septic patients may anticipate unblinding for critical findings approximately 1 in every 20 echocardiograms.

Authors: Sugimoto K, Yoshihisa A, Nakazato K, Yokokawa T, Misaka T, Oikawa M, Kobayashi A, Yamaki T, Kunii H, Ishida T, Takeishi Y Abstract Pulmonary hypertension (PH) caused by left-sided heart disease (LHD-PH) is classified into 2 types: isolated post-capillary PH (Ipc-PH) and combined pre- and post-capillary PH (Cpc-PH). However, the impact of pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR) or diastolic pressure gradient (DPG) on the prognosis of LHD-PH has varied among previous studies. Thus, we verified the significance of PVR or DPG on the prognosis of LHD-PH in our series.We analyzed 243 consecutive LHD-PH patients. The...
