INTRODUCTION Arginine vasopressin (AVP) is increasingly used to restore mean arterial pressure (MAP) in low-pressure shock states unresponsive to conventional inotropes. This is potentially deleterious since AVP is also known to reduce cardiac output by increasing vascular resistance. The effects of AVP on blood flow to vital organs and cardiac performance(More)
Early invasive treatments in patients with acute heart failure (AHF) are critical components to improve outcome. We aimed to establish if such treatments were applied according to existing guidelines and also to assess the subsequent mortality in the complete AHF population. All patients with AHF admitted to the intensive care unit/coronary care unit during(More)
