BACKGROUND The effect of previous long-term hypertension on mortality in acute heart failure (HF), regardless of blood pressure values, has not been well studied. METHODS Acute Heart Failure Database (AHEAD) - Czech HF registry enrolled 4153 consecutive patients with acute HF. We excluded severe forms (cardiogenic shock, pulmonary oedema, right HF) and(More)
Initial risk stratification in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) is poorly validated. Previous studies tended to evaluate the prognostic significance of only one or two selected ECG parameters. The aim of this study was to evaluate the impact of multiple ECG parameters on mortality in AHF. The Acute Heart Failure Database (AHEAD) registry collected(More)
AIM OF STUDY To assess direct in-patient cost and length of stay in the intensive care unit (ICU) and the standard cardiology unit in acute heart failure (AHF) readmissions. RESULTS Out of 1 759 patients hospitalized with acute heart failure, 223 patients were readmitted to Faculty Hospital Brno-Bohunice (Czech Republic) during study period (61.4% male;(More)
OBJECTIVE Even though several studies described a positive influence of elevated initial blood pressure on the outcome in acute heart failure (AHF), data specifically addressed to a population with severe AHF associated with antecedent hypertension, regardless of admission blood pressure values, are missing. METHODS AND RESULTS From the 4153 consecutive(More)
AIM OF STUDY To evaluate the influence of entry hemoglobin level on the hospitalization mortality of the patients admitted with AHF caused by 4 major etiologies--acute coronary syndrome with ST elevation (STEMI, n = 325) and without ST elevation (nonSTEMI, n = 210), decompensated chronic ischaemic heart disease (IHD, n = 206) and dilated cardiomyopathy(More)
BACKGROUND Heart failure is a syndrome with increasing prevalence and poor prognosis. The aim of the article is to describe the characteristics, etiology, treatment and short-term prognosis of consecutive patients hospitalized for acute heart failure (AHF) in a regional hospital without Cardiocentre. PATIENTS AND METHODS From 1/2007 to 5/2009 in total 752(More)
