REVIEW
Peter C Farrell, Glenn Richards
Sleep-disordered breathing (SDB) is a highly prevalent condition, and is associated with many debilitating chronic diseases. The role of untreated obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in arterial hypertension has been recognized in international guidelines. Treatment with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is associated with clinically-relevant reductions in blood pressure. In heart failure (HF), SDB is associated with worse prognosis and increased mortality. Major HF guidelines recommend that patients should be treated for sleep apnea to improve their HF status...

The objective of this study was to describe a contemporary cohort of pediatric patients hospitalized for clinically suspected myocarditis. A retrospective chart review was performed at seven tertiary pediatric hospitals. Electronic medical records were searched between 2008 and 2012 for patients ≤18 years admitted with an ICD-9 code consistent with myocarditis. Patients were excluded if the admitting or consulting cardiologist did not suspect myocarditis during the admission or an alternative diagnosis was determined...

Cardiac resynchronization therapy (CRT) improves cardiac hemodynamics. Therefore, the maintenance dose of loop diuretic therapy might be reduced. Consecutive patients who underwent CRT (n = 648) were retrospectively evaluated. Loop diuretic dose was recorded at baseline before implantation and 6 months later with patients classified into 4 groups: (1) no loop diuretic, (2) down-titration, (3) unchanged dose, and (4) up-titration. Afterward total loop diuretic exposure was calculated. Renal function trajectories were evaluated as the difference between implantation and censoring serum creatinine (Cr) value...

BACKGROUND: It is not known whether older patients with acute heart failure (HF) receiving tolvaptan have decreased mortality rates and a better long-term prognosis than patients who receive furosemide. We conducted a systematic review of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) to address this issue. METHODS: The Medline, Embase, and Cochrane Library databases were searched for English-language RCTs published before September 2016 comparing tolvaptan with furosemide treatment in older patients (>65 years old) after acute HF...

Long-term survival after left ventricular assist device (LVAD) implantation in heart failure patients is mainly determined by a sophisticated after-care. Ambulatory visits only take place every 12 weeks. In case of life-threatening complications (pump thrombosis, driveline infection) this might lead to delayed diagnosis and delayed intervention. It is the intention of the international project Medolution (Medical care evolution) to develop new approaches in order to create best structures for telemonitoring of LVAD patients...

BACKGROUND: Women have an increased risk of rehospitalization in the immediate postdischarge period; however, few studies have determined how readmission risk dynamically changes on a day-to-day basis over the full year after hospitalization by sex and how these differences compare with the risk for mortality. METHODS AND RESULTS: We identified >3 000 000 hospitalizations of patients with a principal discharge diagnosis of heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, or pneumonia and estimated sex differences in the daily risk of rehospitalization/death 1 year after discharge from a population of Medicare fee-for-service beneficiaries aged 65 years and older...

OBJECTIVES: This study analyzed HFpEF patient characteristics and clinical outcomes according to race/ethnicity and adjusted for patient and hospital characteristics along with socioeconomic status (SES). BACKGROUND: The proportion of hospitalizations for heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) has increased over the last decade. Whether the short- and long-term outcomes differ between racial/ethnic groups is not well described. METHODS: The Get With The Guidelines-Heart Failure registry was linked to Medicare administrative data to identify hospitalized patients with HFpEF ≥65 years of age with left ventricular ejection fraction ≥50% between 2006 and 2014...

OBJECTIVES: This study sought to examine the associations between heart failure (HF)-related hospital length of stay and 30-day readmissions and HF hospital length of stay and mortality rates. BACKGROUND: Although reducing HF readmission and mortality rates are health care priorities, how HF-related hospital length of stay affects these outcomes is not fully known. METHODS: A population-level, multicenter cohort study of 58,230 patients with HF (age >65 years) was conducted in Ontario, Canada between April 1, 2003 and March 31, 2012...

BACKGROUND: Digoxin use has been shown to be associated with a lower risk of 30-day all-cause hospital readmissions in older patients with heart failure (HF). In the current study, we examined this association among long-term care (LTC) residents hospitalized for HF. METHODS: Of the 8049 Medicare beneficiaries discharged alive after hospitalization for HF from 106 Alabama hospitals, 545 (7%) were LTC residents, of which 227 (42%) received discharge prescriptions for digoxin...

REVIEW
Nicole B Cyrille, Snehal R Patel
Acute Heart Failure (AHF) hospitalization presents a significant financial burden and portends a poor prognosis following discharge. As such, there has been significant emphasis on the late inpatient management of patients hospitalized with AHF to ensure successful transition to the outpatient setting and to reduce overall readmission and mortality rates. Thorough discharge planning and a multidisciplinary team approach are essential and as outlined in this review should focus on four key elements: the assessment of patients' readiness for discharge, optimization of goal directed medical therapy and appropriate device therapy, patient education and transition to the outpatient care...

BACKGROUND: Prealbumin is a maker of nutritional status and inflammation of potential prognostic value in acute heart failure (HF). The aim of this study is to evaluate if low prealbumin levels on admission predict mortality and readmissions in patients with acute HF. METHOD: We conducted a prospective observational cohort study including 442 patients hospitalized for acute HF. Patients were classified in two groups according to prealbumin levels: "normal" prealbumin (>15mg) and "low" prealbumin (≤15mg/dL)...

BACKGROUND: Up to one fifth of readmissions after a heart failure hospitalization occur at a different hospital. This negatively impacts information continuity, but whether site of readmission impacts subsequent outcomes is unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS: Retrospective cohort study of all patients discharged with a primary diagnosis of heart failure in Canada between April 2004 and December 2013. We compared patients readmitted within 30 days to the original hospital versus a different hospital...
