Clinical Trial Summary

Recent studies have suggested that the use of left ventricular ejection volume index calculation may aid in the hemodynamic management of critically ill patients. However, a prospective and randomized comparison in patients with heart failure for inotropic dose adjustment has not been described. The objective of this study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of ejection volume index versus liberal strategy in adjusting dobutamine dose in patients with heart failure and low cardiac output. Methodology: A unicentric, randomized and prospective study will be performed in a comparative manner. Hospital data (test results, medical outcomes, dobutamine dose, complications) of patients will be analyzed for safety and effectiveness. Expected results: The use of ejection volume index is not inferior to the liberal strategy in the initial adjustment of the dose of dobutamine in patients with heart failure.
