Pulmonary edema occurs when fluid leaks from the pulmonary capillary network into the lung interstitium and alveoli. When the heart is not able to pump blood to the body efficiently, fluid can back up into the veins that take blood through the lungs to the left atrium. This then builds up the pressure in the blood vessels and fluid is pushed into the alveoli in the lungs. The fluid reduces normal oxygen movement through the lungs and can cause impaired gas exchange and respiratory failure… Expand

Intrathoracic Impedance Monitoring in Patients With Heart Failure: Correlation With Fluid Status and Feasibility of Early Warning Preceding Hospitalization
TLDR
Intrathoracic impedance is inversely correlated with pulmonary capillary wedge pressure and fluid balance and decreased before the onset of patient symptoms and before hospital admission for fluid overload. Expand
Intrathoracic impedance monitoring to predict decompensated heart failure.
TLDR
Receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis showed that increasing the threshold for the OptiVol alert provided a substantial increase in specificity for the detection of HF, with the optimal cut-off value identified at 120 Omega . Expand
Ambulatory monitoring of congestive heart failure by multiple bioelectric impedance vectors.
TLDR
Measuring multiple impedance signals could be useful for optimizing ambulatory monitoring in heart failure patients, and impedance vectors employing an LV lead are highly responsive to physiologic changes during CHF. Expand
Clinical utility of intrathoracic impedance monitoring to alert patients with an implanted device of deteriorating chronic heart failure.
TLDR
A device-based algorithm that alerts patients in case of decreasing intrathoracic impedance facilitates the detection of HF deterioration. Expand
Can monitoring of intrathoracic impedance reduce morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic heart failure? Rationale and design of the Diagnostic Outcome Trial in Heart Failure (DOT‐HF) ☆
TLDR
Monitoring of intrathoracic impedance, measured from an implanted device, can detect increases in pulmonary fluid retention early and facilitate timely treatment interventions. Expand
