Hypotension is associated with diuretic resistance in severe chronic heart failure, independent of renal function
Background: Diuretic resistance and systemic hypotension are common in chronic heart failure (CHF), however, the two have not been associated. Aims: Since blood pressure (BP) might be an important determinant of sodium excretion, we searched for an association between BP and diuretic dosage in severe CHF. Methods: Our heart failure database was retrospectively reviewed for patients with severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction. The 54-patient cohort was divided on the basis of frusemide...[Show more]
