The primary purpose of this study is to evaluate the diagnostic performance of three methods for measuring right ventricular size and function including the Philips Novel RV quantification technologies (RV Heart Model volumetric analysis and Philips 2D strain) and the Upper Valley Right Ventricle Algorithm (UVRV) algorithm as compared to the gold standard of volumetric analysis via cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (CMR) in a broad patient population.
Pulmonary Artery Compliance measurements will be obtained with the Respirix device in patients with congestive heart failure decompensation. Echocardiogram, weight measurements, and BNP will also be gathered as independent measures of decompensation in the clinic. Pulmonary Artery Compliance measurements will be made daily during the hospital stay. Patients can continue using the device at home for the next 3 weeks. Each patient will serve as their own control and relative changes from their baseline will be recorded for each parameter.
This is a prospective, single arm, early feasibility study designed to evaluate the safety and device performance of The RenalGuard System in the management of patients admitted with signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure who require diuresis for the treatment of volume overload.
This is a prospective, single arm, early feasibility study (EFS) designed to evaluate the safety and device performance of The RenalGuard System in the management of patients admitted with signs and symptoms of congestive heart failure who require diuresis for the treatment of volume overload.
Safety and performance evaluation of the preCARDIA System for patients with ADHF.
This trial is to evaluate two types of electrical muscle Stimulation (EMS) stimulation (low intensity "conventional stimulation" vs. high intensity "Russian" stimulation) of legs in comparison with a control group without EMS in a cohort of elderly patients with severe deconditioning after CHF decompensation.
Polypharmacy is common among older adults in the United States and is associated with harms such as adverse drug reactions and higher costs of care. This pilot-phase project is designed to test two electronic health record (EHR)-based behavioral economic nudges to help primary care clinicians reduce the rate of high-risk polypharmacy among their older adult patients.
To confirm the non-inferiority of OPC-61815 16-mg injection to tolvaptan 15-mg tablet using as the primary endpoint the change in body weight following 5-day intravenous administration of OPC-61815 16-mg injection or 5-day oral administration of tolvaptan 15-mg tablet to CHF patients with volume overload despite having received diuretics other than vasopressin antagonists
The research project aims to perform data extraction, integration and analysis across multiple clinical, administrative, financial and pharmacy databases in the participating institutions. The key data components will include clinical cardiovascular specific data, procedural data, financial and administrative data (e.g. cost of medications and supplies, length of stay, diagnosis codes etc.), short-to-long term clinical outcomes (including hospital re-admissions, cardiovascular events, death), and quality-of-care indices (e.g. compliance to guideline-recommended therapy and medications). The research project will involve all patients proven and/or suspected with coronary artery disease (CAD), congestive heart failure (CHF) and atrial fibrillation (AF) admitted to National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) and NUH.
This two-year pilot study will test whether a one-page "Jumpstart Form" will affect goals-of-care discussions in the hospital. This form will be provided to clinicians and will include patient-specific information about preferences for goals-of-care communication and for care, as well as tips to improve this communication. Jumpstart forms will also be provided to patients or, if they are unable to communicate, their surrogates/family members. The information on the form will be obtained from questionnaires. The form is tailored to help patients and surrogates talk with clinicians about goals of care. This study is based on a successful application of Jumpstart Form in the outpatient clinic setting.
