Monitoring of Daily Body Weight and Intrathoracic Impedance in Heart Failure Patients With a High Risk of Volume Overload Decompensation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Decompensation is frequent in heart failure (HF) patients and predicts poor prognosis. HYPOTHESIS Volume-overload events in HF patients are preceded by changes in intrathoracic impedance (Z) and body weight (BW); monitoring these parameters may be useful to predict decompensation. METHODS Forty-three HF patients (LVEF 25% ± 12%) with a recent… (More)
