  • Heart FailureAround 5 million people in the United States have heart failure.  About 550 thousand new cases are diagnosed each year.  More than 287 thousand people in the United States die each year with heart failure.1 Hospitalizations for heart failure have increased substantially.  They rose from 402,000 in 1979 to 1,101,000 in 2004.(National Hospital Discharge Survey) Heart failure is the most common reason for hospitalization among people on Medicare.  Hospitalizations for heart failure are higher in black than white people on Medicare.2,3 The most common causes of heart failure are coronary artery disease, hypertension or high blood pressure, and diabetes. About 7 of 10 people with heart failure had high blood pressure before being diagnosed.  About 22 percent of men and 46 percent of women will develop heart failure within 6 years of having a heart attack.1,4 Heart failure as an underlying or contributing cause of death—286,700 (2003)1  From 1993–2003, deaths from heart failure (ICD–9 428) increased 20.5%. In the same time period, the death rate declined 2%. The 2003 overall death rate for heart failure was 19.7 per 100,000. Death rates were 20.5 for white males, 23.4 for black males, 18.4 for white females and 20.4 for black females.1 
  • Increase pressure = increased stretch of ventricular wall.Ventricular muscle fibers are stretched by blood volume.Major factor that affects preload is venous return.Ventricular compliance – the elasticity or amount of give when blood enters ventricle.Ventricular hypertrophy = decreased ventricular compliance
  • Discuss the diameter and distensibility of the great vessels and effect on PVR and afterload.Discuss the diameter of the semilunar valves and effect of PVR and afterload.
  • Answer D : all of the above
  • Heart Failure:The inability of the heart to pump sufficient blood to meet the needs of the tissues for oxygen and nutrientsA syndrome characterized by fluid overload or inadequate tissue perfusionThe term HF indicates myocardial disease, in which there is a problem with the contraction of the heart (systolic failure) or filling of the heart (diastolic failure).Some cases are reversible.Most HF is a progressive, lifelong disorder managed with lifestyle changes and medications.
  • Discuss pathophysiology of HFFollow chart discussing:Causes of HFPathophysiology (resulting low C/O, decreased B/P, decreased renal perfusion)Baroreceptors activation = activation of SNSActivation of Renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system = sodium and water retention, vasoconstriction = increased afterload, increased B/P, increased HR = Remodeling and LVHRemodeling and ventricular hypertrophy = impaired filling and contractility
  • Open space inside the ventricles can be restricted by heart muscle that “bulks up” due to overwork or other causes or that stiffens and loses it flexibility.Diastolic Failure When your heart is thick and stiff, you have diastolic failure. Your EF may be normal (over 40%), but your heart resists filling with blood because it cannot relax. Pumping against high blood pressure is the most common cause of this type of heart failure. Diastolic failureNormal ejection fractionBlood backs up in systemic systemsOpen space inside the ventricles can be restricted by heart muscle that “bulks up” due to overwork or other causes or that stiffens and loses it flexibility.The heart’s ventricles can have trouble filling with blood for two main reasons. Overworked heart muscle can “bulk up,” like a weightlifter; this reduces the open space inside the ventricles. Alternatively, the heart muscle may stiffen and become less flexible.Bulking and stiffening are sometimes the result of genetic signals. Most of the time, though, they have more immediate causes. High blood pressure is one of the most common causes of diastolic trouble. Diabetes, cholesterol-clogged arteries, and narrowed heart valves also contribute to the problem. Less common causes include conditions that cause protein, iron, and other substances to infiltrate heart muscle. Such conditions include amyloidosis, hemochromatosis, and sarcoidosis.
