Clinical Trial Summary

The goal of this observational study is to learn about the decongestion process in heart failure patients. The main question it aims to answer is: What is the behavior of congestion during hospitalization in adult patients with acute heart failure (AHF)? Participants will be evaluated in the decongestion process through clinical, analytical, and ultrasonographic variables, and they will be followed up for one year to assess mortality and rehospitalization rates in this population.

Clinical Trial Description

Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome characterized by the presence of dyspnea, lower extremity edema, orthopnea, jugular venous distention, and pulmonary crackles, among others, secondary to elevated ventricular filling pressures. It is the leading cause of hospitalization in medical services in Chile and worldwide, with the majority of patients being elderly. Decompensation of HF is explained in most cases by fluid overload (congestion) and can be studied through biomarkers, clinical signs, radiographic, and ultrasonographic findings. The Chilean demographic transition makes it necessary to optimize the multiparametric and protocolized management of hospitalized patients. General Objective: To evaluate and describe the decongestion process, including residual congestion, during hospitalization for heart failure at the Clinical Hospital of the University of Chile (HCUCh). A prospective observational cohort study will be conducted with all patients hospitalized for heart failure at HCUCh. Clinical, analytical, and ultrasonographic variables, especially those related to congestion assessment, will be recorded. Enrollment will last for one year from institutional authorization, and telephone follow-up will be conducted for one year post-discharge, extendable up to five year. ;
