Clinical Trial Summary

Heart failure is a general disease affecting many organs and regulatory systems with a prevalence of 10% after 75 years of age, leading to significant hospitalization in the elderly. This generates a significant cost for our health system. The management of patients over 75 years of age in acute heart failure requires special monitoring of diuresis and weight. However, it is sometimes difficult to collect urine from incontinent elderly patients (not catheterized, habitually wearing protection) under intravenous diuretics. The evaluation of a non-invasive technique of urine collection for the adaptation of diuretic treatment in the incontinent patient with heart failure over 75 years of age in the acute phase seems to us to be interesting to conduct.
