Monitoring and treatment strategies in advanced acute heart failure

Resources by topic selected by ACVC

Experts' Introduction

Acute heart failure (AHF) is one of the most frequent causes of urgent cardiac care, requiring good clinical knowledge and advanced clinical skills for clinical decision making that should be trained, including clinical suspicion, knowledge of mechanisms of disease and precipitants, diagnostic techniques, risk stratification and, of course, adequate treatment.

Advanced AHF is a vital emergency requiring quick and effective action, from early diagnosis to immediate management, including control of precipitants, medical therapies or mechanical ventilation or circulatory support.

Multidisciplinary teams and coordinated workflows are most often needed in this clinical setting.
