OBJECTIVE: Depression exacerbates the burden of heart failure and independently predicts mortality. The aim of this study was to investigate which specific symptoms of depression predict all-cause mortality in systolic heart failure patients. METHODS: Consecutive outpatients with heart failure and impaired left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), attending an Australian metropolitan heart function clinic between 2001 and 2011, were enrolled. The Cardiac Depression Scale (CDS) was completed as a component of usual care...

Purpose: Recent evidence supports the prognostic significance of frailty for functional decline and poor health outcomes in patients with chronic kidney disease. Yet, despite the development of clinical tools to screen for frailty, little is known about the experiential impact of screening for frailty in this setting. The Frailty Assessment for Care Planning Tool (FACT) evaluates frailty across 4 domains: mobility, function, social circumstances, and cognition. The purpose of this qualitative study was as follows: 1) explore the nurse experience of screening for frailty using the FACT tool in a specialized outpatient renal clinic; 2) determine how, if at all, provider perceptions of frailty changed after implementation of the frailty screening tool; and 3) determine the perceived factors that influence uptake and administration of the FACT screening tool in a specialized clinical setting...

Sepsis is an uncontrolled host's response to infection and leads to life-threatening organ dysfunction. Traditional prognostic indicators for short-term mortality, such as intensive care unit (ICU) mortality, hospital mortality, cannot reveal the real and final outcome of sepsis patients. Sepsis patients remain high mortality even several years after hospital discharge, at the same time the quality of life, and the cognitive function were also damaged at varying degrees. Nowadays, studies about long-term quality of life for sepsis were still sparse and further study was still needed...

CONTEXT: Patients with advanced cancer often overestimate their time left to live. Those who have heightened awareness of their cognitive and physical deficits at the end of life may have a better prognostic understanding. OBJECTIVES: We sought to investigate the extent to which patients' self-reports of physical well-being and cognitive function were associated with prognostic understanding. METHODS: Logistic regression analyzed data from Coping with Cancer II, a National Cancer Institute-funded study of patients with advanced cancer from nine US cancer clinics...

BACKGROUND: Medically unexplained physical symptoms are an important health problem in primary care, with a spectrum from mild to chronic. The burden of chronic medically unexplained physical symptoms is substantial for patients, health care professionals, and society. Therefore, early identification of patients with moderate medically unexplained physical symptoms is needed in order to prevent chronicity. The preventive screening of medically unexplained physical symptoms (PRESUME) screening method was developed using data from the electronic medical record of the patients' general practitioner and demonstrated its prognostic accuracy to identify patients with moderate medically unexplained physical symptoms...

Idiopathic normal pressure hydrocephalus (iNPH) is a dementia-inducing disorder. Primary cause of iNPH is speculated to be a reduction of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) absorption, which secondarily induces hydrocephalus, compression of brain, and reduction of CSF production. Patients are treated by surgically inserting a shunt to deliver excess CSF to the abdominal cavity. The prognosis for cognitive improvement after shunt surgery has been difficult to predict. We therefore investigated various CSF proteins, hoping to find a biomarker predictive of cognitive performance one to two years after shunt surgery...
