ConclusionsThis survey showed that RM service was usually set up with a primary nursing model including on average 2 responsible physicians and 1 nurse and mainly offered to ICD/CRT patients. Technical, AF and ventricular arrhythmia alerts triggered prompt reactions, while heart failure related indexes were generally less applied.This article is protected by copyright.

AbstractBackgroundHeart failure is heterogeneous in aetiology, pathophysiology, and presentation. Despite this diversity, clinical trials of patients hospitalized for HF deal with this problem as a single entity, which may be one reason for repeated failures.MethodsThe first EuroHeart Failure Survey screened consecutive deaths and discharges of patients with suspected heart failure during 2000 –2001. Patients were sorted into seven mutually exclusive hierarchical presentations: (1) with cardiac arrest/ventricular arrhythmia; (2) with acute coronary syndrome; (3) with rapid atrial fibrillation; (4) with acute breathle...

This report describes prospective, cross‐sectional study conducted at Chiang Mai University. One hundred and fourteen patients were recruited in the study. All of the patients were diagnosed as having HFrEF, AF or both and had been receiving digoxin for at least 4 weeks. The SDC of each patient was measured at steady state and assigned to one of 3 groups according to the classifications of the Digitalis Investigation Group (DIG) trial: in the therapeutic range, over the therapeutic range and in the suboptimal range. Results and discussionThere were significant correlations between the measured and predicted SDCs usi...

CONCLUSIONS: New onset SVA was prevalent in AA patients with severe sepsis and occurred more frequently with advanced age, increased severity of illness, congestive heart failure, and acute respiratory failure; it was associated with higher unadjusted in hospital mortality. However, after multiple adjustments, new onset SVA did not remain an independent predictor of mortality. PMID: 27103771 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
