Difference in terms heart failure, heart attack, and sudden cardiac death(SCD) and Shock 1.HF[de^CO(tx ionotropes)& fluid overload/ high PCWP(tx diuretic]2. MI. 3. Arrhythmia 4.cardiogenic/distributive/septic/hypovolemic shock(tx vasoconstrictors to in^ BP in spepsis),de^/in^ CO,CI, lo BP & MAP,lack of perfusion.BP=CO x tpr
Define heart failure Inability of heart to meet the metabolic demand of body. Due to contraction / filling problem. Result in de^ CO & CI (organ perfusion) with or w. out volume overload or preload (in^ wt 3-5lb/wk,congestion PDWP>18)
Continuation of definition of HF Final pathway of many cardiac disorder.May result in activation of compensatory further progress the HF. Can be prevented and controlled but not cured.if not tx,lead to cardiogenic shock (no perfusion to organ). death is due to SCD.
1.Types of HF? 2.define diastolic HF? how is it different from systolic HF in diagnosis and treatment? 1.Systolic and diastolic HF.2.Due to ventricles filling problem. Inadequate filling due to thick wall. EF is normal(60%) or >50%. Seen in elderly. Main reason is HTN. treatment is to de^ HR give more time to fill.
Why do we need to differentiate systolic and diastolic HF Pathophysiology And haemodynamicly same but causes & treatment differ.
Define Systolic HF.Causes of systolic HF Due to inadequate ventricular contraction. EF is decreased < 40%. more prevalent.1.Due to de^ muscle mass (IHD,MI). 2. Ventricular hypertrophy- pressure (BP) or volume(valve regurgitation) overload. 3.dilated cardiomyopathy (genetic)4. thyroid disease(hi
Causes of diastolic HF 1.Ventricular stiffness ( MI,LVH,cardiomyopathy,infiltrated myocardial disease)2.pericardial desese 3. Mitral or tricuspid stenosis.
Rx that can ppt HF? remember CO= HR x SV 1. Neg. ionotrops-BB, non DHP CCB, antiarrhythmic, antifungal. 2. Cardiotoxic rx-doxorubicin,cyclophosphamide, ethanol, amphetamine 3. Rx causing Na, water retention –Steroid, NSAID,actose
Define compensated HF/ stable HF In this state rx keep patient symptom free ( no symptom of volume overload/ decreased perfusion). Decreased CO is compensated with rx.
Define acute decompensated or exacerbation of HF Acute worsening of symptom of decreased CO, which leads to hypoperfusion ( may lead to shock or end organ failure ie, MAP)and volume overload. need fluid restriction(<2L fluid,<2gm of Na) and diuretics
Define End stage or refractory or advanced HF Patient has persistent symptoms of hypoperfusion or fluid overload despite optimal treatment.
Define Cardiogenic shock? What is septic shock? shock(low SBP <90, MAP <65 and impaired organ perfusion) due to pumping issue of heart. sign&symp. of HF + sympt. of shock.low CO in both.( BP= CO x TPR). also high preload ( fluid), afterload in cardiogenic shock. tx inotropes. septic due to infection.

Define pulse pressure difference between SBP and DBP. indicator of arterial wall tension/ arterial “stiffness” (arteriosclerosis and/or atherosclerosis). can predict cardiovascular risk (isolated systolic hypertension).
How do you measure preload. whats normal. what do you mean by high or low preload and how do you treat those? Measured hemodynamically by PAOP/pulmonary artery occlusive pressure, PCWP/pulmonary capillary wedge pressure. it measure left ventricular preload.optimal <12 mmg/hg(15-18).CVP measure R. ventricular preload / R. ventricular filling pressure. normal<5.dir
Phathophysiology MI or HTN lead to de^ CO, which leads to activation of neurohormaone Angio 2, aldosterone(fluid overload/preload), Nor epi ( in^ afterload), endothelin 1, natriuretic peptide, Arginine Vasopressin(AVP), proinflamatory cytokines. These neurohormones activ
What happens in left and right sided HF. Left HF-Blood not effectively pumped from the left ventricle to the peripheral circulation. cause pul. edema if not treated end up in R. side HF. Right-Blood not effectively pumped from the right ventricle into the lungs.leads to peripheral symptoms.
General Signs and Symptoms of CHF: Fatigue due to de^ CO. dyspnea due to fluid retention,.tachycardia (compensation),cardiomegaly, nocturea(body compensate for the lack of perfusion at night, poor thinking(lack of brain perfusion).
symptoms of left side HF DOE, PND, Pulmonary edema, Orthopnea, Tachypnea, Cough, Bibasilar rales, S3 Gallop rhythm, Pleural effusions.
symptoms of right side HF N & V, anorexia Abdominal distention, JVD, Spleenomegaly, Hepatomegaly, HJR, Peripheral edema (“tightness”), Ascites.

Classifying and Categorizing the HF Patient 1.Functional Classification by NYHA, 2. Hemodynamic Subset - used for treating decompensated HF and cardiogenic shock, 3.HF staging by ACC/AHA -used for treating stable HF
New York Heart Association Functional Classification based on severity of symptom Class I No limitation of physical activity, Class II Slight limitation of physical activity, Class III Marked limitation of physical activity, Class IV Unable to carry on any physical activity w/o discomfort.
What are ACC/AHA Stages of Heart Failure. ADV of staging system- cannot push back from stage C to B. it recognizes evolution and progression of the disorder AND risk factor modification and preventive treatment strategies (stable HF) Stage A High risk; no structural abnormalities. normal EF. Stage B- Structural abnormalities; no symptoms. normal EF. Stage C- Structural abnormalities; current or previous symptoms. Stage D- End stage symptoms refractory to treatment.
what are Hemodynamic Subsets of HF?( use a pulmonary artery catheter or swan -ganz catheter to measure CO, R, L intra cardiac pressure ) used to tx decompensated HF and to evaluate rx is working Subset I Normal -warm ,dry (CI > 2.2,PCWP < 18). Sub. II Pulmonary Congestion/high preload.warm,wet(CI > 2.2,PCWP > 18). Sub.III Hypoperfusion.cold,dry(CI < 2.2, PCWP < 18) Sub. IV Pulmonary Congestion & Hypoperfusion.cold, wet(CI < 2.2,PCWP>18
goals of therapy and what is the cause of death 1.Remove or mitigate the underlying cause.2. Relieve symptoms and improve quality of life.3.Prevent occurrence or development / progression. dx is prevented/ controlled but not cured.death of HF is due to arrhythmia-use (ICD) better than rx in systolic HF
