We aimed to (1) investigate the relation between diuretic response (DR) with or without systemic congestion and prognosis and (2) explore the potential predictors of poor DR for risk stratification in patients with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). We enrolled 186 consecutive patients hospitalized for ADHF. The DR was defined as (body weight at discharge - body weight at admission)/40 mg furosemide or equivalent loop diuretic dose. Systemic congestion on admission was simply evaluated… CONTINUE READING
