Session Description
Congestion remains a hallmark symptom of heart failure. Accurate and timely assessment of volume status is an essential skill for heart failure patients and clinicians. This session will review classic and contemporary approaches to assessments of volume status.
Learning Objectives

As a result of this educational session, the learner will be able to:

  1. Estimate and monitor the speed and extent of fluid removal required for patients hospitalized for acute heart failure with volume overload.
  2. Compare the effectiveness and safety of various diuretic strategies used to decongest patients hospitalized for volume overload.
  3. Identify appropriate patients for whom IV vasodilators and/or inotropic support should be considered to augment decongestion in patients with volume overload.
  4. Describe the role of renal replacement and device therapies to remove fluid in patients hospitalized for volume overload.
  5. Evaluate the evolving role of interventional approaches & devices used to remove fluid in patients hospitalized for acute heart failure with volume overload.
