Accurate monitoring of intravascular fluid volume: A novel application of intrathoracic impedance measures for the guidance of volume reduction therapy

Abstract

BACKGROUND A significant proportion of patients admitted for acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) that undergo volume reduction therapy are discharged with unchanged or increased bodyweight suggesting that the endpoints for these therapies are not optimally defined. We aimed to identify vectors that can help monitor changes in intravascular fluid volume… (More)
