Evaluating pulmonary congestion with lung ultrasound and the need to take the next steps in heart failure.

Abstract

Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome with complex pathophysiology, the various clinical phenotypes of which pose both diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. The signs and symptoms of HF have neither good sensitivity nor specificity for diagnosis. Levels of natriuretic peptides (NPs; i.e. BNP, NT-proBNP, MR-proANP) correlate with left ventricular (LV) wall… (More)
