Portal flow pulsatility detected by Doppler ultrasound is an echographic marker of cardiogenic portal hypertension from right ventricular failure and is associated with adverse outcomes based on previous studies performed at the Montreal Heart Institute. This multicenter prospective cohort study aims to determine if portal flow pulsatility after cardiopulmonary bypass separation is associated with a longer requirement of life support after cardiac surgery.
The purpose of this study is to compare a short, behavioral treatment for insomnia with sleep monitoring to determine whether these approaches are effective in reducing insomnia and improving sleep quality among patients with heart failure (HF). This study will also examine the relationship between insomnia and cognitive functioning in HF and the effects of the behavioral treatment on cognitive functioning, self-care, distress, HF symptoms, and functional status. Participants will be randomly assigned to four-sessions of a behavioral treatment (Brief Behavioral Treatment for Insomnia; BBTI) or sleep monitoring.
A prospective, multi-national, open-label clinical study which is conducted to asses the safety, feasibility and performance of the TRVD™ System in hospital-admitted patients with Acute Decompensated Heart Failure (ADHF) and evidence of reduced left ventricular ejection fraction. The study will include patients who present with significant venous congestion, as evidenced by clinical, laboratory and imaging signs of fluid retention. Study participation, for each enrolled subject, will last approximately 3 months post index procedure. Patients will be evaluated from enrollment until hospital discharge, then at 30, 60, and 90 days post procedure.
The investigators will conduct a feasibility study of an enhanced transitional care intervention, that will: 1) automate identification and risk-stratification of patients with CHF and IHD with social vulnerabilities; 2) incorporate a new standardized social vulnerabilities screening tool into clinical care; 3) enable electronic referrals to community resources; and 4) add novel community-based interventions to the existing medically-oriented transitional care intervention that is the standard of care at the study hospital (Parkland Hospital in Dallas, Texas) and other hospitals nationwide.
This project compares two models of the Serious Illness Care Program (SICP) in primary care: clinician-focused SICP and team-based SICP. Discussion and planning for serious illness care can help patients identify what is most important to them and assure they receive care that best matches their goals and values, such as spending more time at home or not being in pain.
This study will assess the ability of a novel optical measurement system to determine changes in the hemodynamic status of heart failure patients admitted to the hospital with a primary diagnosis of acute decompensated heart failure. Patients will be measured with both the novel measurement system and reference devices that are FDA-cleared for hemodynamic measurements. The measurements from the novel system will be compared to reference variables describing hemodynamic and congestive status, including stroke volume, central venous pressure, and serum levels of NT-proBNP.
This study compares the effectiveness of two different approaches to advance care planning among older African Americans and older Whites living in the community. The two approaches are a structured approach with an advance care planning conversation led by a trained person using Respecting Choices (First Steps) and a patient-driven approach which includes a Five Wishes advance care planning form written in plain language. The study will determine which approach is more effective at increasing advance care planning within each racial group and reducing differences between the two groups in advance care planning.
This is an investigational study of experimental Medication BMS-986231 given to participants with weakened or damaged liver function.
To investigate the effects of intravenous administration of OPC-61815 at 16 and 32 mg on QT/QTc interval in healthy male subjects
Sudden cardiac death continues to be a major contributor to mortality in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy. While implantable defibrillators can prevent death from ventricular arrhythmias, our current approach to identify patients at highest risk primarily rests on demonstrating a reduction in left ventricular ejection fraction less than 35%. The purpose of this observational cohort study is to prospectively test whether this can be enhanced by quantifying the amount of sympathetic denervation, left ventricular end-diastolic volume or brain natriuretic peptide levels.
