Time-to-Furosemide Treatment and Mortality in Patients Hospitalized with Acute Heart Failure

Presented by Stephanie Wang, M.D.

Moderated by Matthew McCullough, M.D.

Key Discussion Points:

  • Early treatment of acute heart failure with loop diuretics lowers mortality despite initial mortality risk, and this treatment strategy might be even more effective in high-risk AHF patients
  • Earlier treatment/identification of acute heart failure relied heavily on classic symptoms/signs suggestive of congestion
    • Orthopnea
    • Elevated JVP
    • Peripheral edema
    • Rales
    • Pulmonary edema
