Journal Article (Review)

Making the definitive diagnosis of heart failure in the acute care setting can be difficult. In the emergency department this needs to be done rapidly, frequently, and accurately, without access to a patient's health records and while simultaneously nitiating the appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic interventions. This section reviews the diagnostic strategies available to the physician confronted with a patient in whom the differential diagnosis includes acute heart failure. © 2008 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins.
