Heart Failure Integrated Care Project: overcoming barriers encountered by primary health care providers in heart failure management.

ConclusionsThe HFICP identified several barriers to improving integrated management for HF patients in the Australian setting. These findings provide important insights into how an HF integrated care model can be implemented to strengthen the working relationship between hospitals and primary care providers in delivering better care to HF patients.What is known about the topic?Multidisciplinary HF programs are heterogeneous in their structures, they have low patient participation rates and a significant proportion of HF patients have further presentations to hospital with HF. Integrating the care of HF patients into the primary care system following hospital admission remains challenging.What does this paper add?This paper identified several factors that hinder the effective delivery of care by primary care providers to patients with HF.What are the implications for practitioners?The findings provide important insights into how an HF integrated care model can be implemented to strengthen the working relationship between tertiary health facilities and primary care providers in delivering better care to HF patients.

Authors: Aubry A, Paternot A, Vieillard-Baron A Abstract Cor pulmonale is a disease of the heart characterised by dilatation of the right ventricle and paradoxical movement of the interventricular septum. The diagnosis depends on echocardiography even if pulmonary artery catheterisation suggests it. It is secondary to pulmonary disease or a disorder of the pulmonary circulation. These two mechanisms, which are often connected, involve pulmonary hypertension as the origin of a systolic and diastolic overload of the right ventricle, which then leads to the alterations of its structure and performance. Acute cor pulmo...

The objective was to determine the strength of association between 24-h urine collections and weighed food records in assessing potassium intake in HF patients stratified by LD usage and spironolactone usage.Methods and ResultsStable outpatients with HF simultaneously completed two 24-h urine collections and two weighed food records on consecutive days. Analyses compared patients stratified by LD and/or spironolactone use. Pearson’s correlation and the Bland-Altman method of agreement assessed the relationship between the techniques. Overall, 109 patients (61 ± 11 yrs, 74% male) were included. The mean differe...

Aberrant epigenetic changes may result from alterations in enzymatic activities, which are responsible for putting in and/or out the covalent groups, altering the epigenome and then modulating gene expression. The identification of novel individual epigenetic-sensitive trajectories at single cell level might pro...
