Sample text

There is a continuum from low cardiac output syndrome to CS. • ESC- 5: High Output Failure Characterised by high cardiac output, usually accompanied by tachycardia, warm peripheries, pulmonary congestion and sometimes a low BP as in septic shock. , catecholamine therapy. • ESC-6: Right Heart Failure (RV-HF) Characterised as low output syndrome with ↑ jugular venous pressure, increased liver size, and hypotension. , acute exacerbation of COPD or severe pneumonia, – anaemia, – hyper/hypothyroidism, and other endocrine diseases, – fluid overload, – drug-induced heart failure, – metabolic/toxic reasons, – infectious diseases (particularly sepsis as high output heart failure), – neuromuscular diseases such as the myopathies, – trauma.

11 Modified from Kass [386]. e) Deranged coupling With aging and in diseases such as hypertension, Ea increases [400, 411, 471, 579]. An increase in Ea is accompanied by an increase in Ees due to a rise in ventricular stiffness [400, 471, 580, 581]: The diastolic cardiac function is affected by the arterial compliance and an increase in vascular stiffness will lead to a concomitant reduction in ventricular compliance [471]. As described above, Ea and Ees have to match in order to achieve optimal energy transfer and mechanical efficiency; thus, the increase in Ees may be seen as a necessary adaption in order to match the vascular properties [400, 555, 571].

SVR, however, only reflects the non-pulsatile component of the peripheral load under steady state conditions [382]. It does not comprise the impact of wave reflections, arterial impedance, or ventricular ejection gradients. Each of these phenomena augments LV-afterload independently of peripheral vascular resistance or arterial pressure [361]. Ageing, hypertension, and aortic stiffening contribute considerably to the pulsatile component of the afterload and thus this component becomes more prominent under those conditions [383, 384].
