What are the appropriate clinical endpoints for managing acute fluid overload in a patient with diastolic heart failure?
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Therapeutic endpoints for managing acute fluid overload in patients with diastolic failure are the same as those used in managing acute systolic heart failure: resolution of rales and dyspnea, reduction of weight, improvement of peripheral edema, and normalization of jugular venous distension (JVD). Blood pressure and heart rate should be controlled. (SOR: C, based on consensus guidelines.)
