Abstract

Emerging concepts in the short term management of acute heart failure have fostered changes in therapeutic targets and the expectations of emergency department and in-hospital treatment options. Investigators and clinicians are now reconsidering how intravenous diuretics, vasodilators, and inotropes commonly used to alleviate congestion and restore hemodynamic stability should be administered; which acute heart failure patients should receive them; and the long-term morbidity and mortality implications of these decisions. This section evaluates these various therapeutic options for patients appropriate for short stay unit management.
