Cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) is a life-threatening emergency necessitating aggressive management. We conducted this study to test the hypothesis that a combination of N-terminal pro-b-type natriuretic peptide (NT-pro-BNP) and some relevant clinical factors may provide better predictability for CPE in heart failure (HF) patients.
This retrospective study enrolled adult HF patients hospitalized during January 2011 to December 2013.

Acute hyperglycemia is a powerful predictor of poor prognosis in acute myocardial infarction (AMI), particularly in patients without diabetes. This emphasizes the importance of an acute glycemic rise rather than glycemia level at admission alone. We investigated in AMI whether the combined evaluation of acute and chronic glycemic levels, as compared with admission glycemia alone, may have a better prognostic value.

Veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VA-ECMO) provides mechanical circulatory support for patients with advanced cardiogenic shock, facilitating myocardial recovery and limiting multi-organ failure. In patients with severely limited left ventricular ejection, peripheral VA-ECMO can further increase left ventricular and left atrial pressures (LAP). Failure to decompress the left heart under these circumstances can result in pulmonary edema and upper body hypoxemia, that is, myocardial and cerebral ischemia.

Acute brain injury with strong surges of adrenergic outflow has resulted in takotsubo cardiomyopathy, but there are surprisingly few reports of takotsubo cardiomyopathy after intracranial hemorrhage, and none have been described from hemorrhage within the brainstem.
We describe a patient with reverse and reversible cardiomyopathy following a hemorrhage in the lateral medulla oblongata. While it is limited in size, the location of the hemorrhage caused acute systolic failure with left ventricular ejection fraction of 27% and vasopressor requirement for cardiogenic shock and pulmonary edema.

In acute heart failure (AHF) syndromes significant respiratory failure (RF) is essentially seen in patients with acute cardiogenic pulmonary oedema (ACPE) or cardiogenic shock (CS). Non-invasive ventilation (NIV), the application of positive intrathoracic pressure through an interface, has shown to be useful in the treatment of moderate to severe RF in several scenarios. There are two main modalities of NIV: continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) and pressure support ventilation (NIPSV) with positive end expiratory pressure.

Pulmonary edema increasingly is recognized as a perioperative complication affecting outcome. Several risk factors have been identified, including those of cardiogenic origin, such as heart failure or excessive fluid administration, and those related to increased pulmonary capillary permeability secondary to inflammatory mediators. Effective treatment requires prompt diagnosis and early intervention.

Hydrochlorothiazide has been shown to cause rare, but serious non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema. We present a case report of a patient with apparent septic shock and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) requiring life-sustaining veno-venous extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (VV-ECMO). Upon further review of the literature and the chronology of the patient's presentation, her condition was most likely due to an immune-mediated reaction to hydrochlorothiazide.

Early risk stratification after primary percutaneous coronary intervention (PPCI) for ST-segment-elevation myocardial infarction is currently challenging. Identification of a low-risk group may improve triage of patients to alternative clinical pathways and support early hospital discharge. Our aim was to assess whether the index of microcirculatory resistance (IMR) at the time of PPCI can identify patients at low risk of early major cardiac complications and to compare its performance against guideline-recommended risk scores.

The presence of B lines on lung ultrasonography is a characteristic feature of both cardiogenic pulmonary edema (CPE) and noncardiogenic alveolar interstitial syndrome (NCAIS), so their presence does not allow the clinician to differentiate between the two entities. Our study used M-mode ultrasonography of the pleura to differentiate CPE from NCAIS.
A total of 43 subjects were enrolled in the study, and based on history, physical examination, and chart review, the patients were divided into three groups: an NCAIS group, a CPE group, and a control group.

A limit of peripheral veno-arterial Extracorporeal Membrane Oxigenator (VA-ECMO) is the inadequate unloading of the left ventricle. The increase of end-diastolic pressure reduces the possibility of a recovery and may cause severe pulmonary edema. In this study, we evaluate our results after implantation of VA-ECMO and Transapical Left Ventricular Vent (TLVV) as a bridge to recovery, heart transplantation or long-term left ventricular assit devices (LVAD).

Clin Auton Res 2018 Feb 15;28(1):53-65. Epub 2017 Sep 15.
Shams Y-Hassan, Per Tornvall
Takotsubo syndrome is a recently recognized acute cardiac disease entity with a clinical presentation resembling that of an acute coronary syndrome. The typical takotsubo syndrome patient has a unique circumferential left (bi-) ventricular contraction abnormality profile that extends beyond a coronary artery supply territory and appears to follow the anatomical cardiac sympathetic innervation. The syndrome predominantly affects postmenopausal women and is often preceded by emotional or physical stress.

Extracorporeal membrane oxygenation systems have undergone rapid technological improvements and are now feasible options for medium-term support of severe cardiac or pulmonary failure. We report five cases of electrical storm that was rescued by the insertion of peripheral veno-arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation systems. This device could help to restore systemic circulation as well as permitting organ perfusion in patients with cardiogenic shock in relation to electrical storm thus achieving greater electrical stability.

In a lung ultrasound examination, interstitial lung lesions are visible as numerous B-line artifacts, and are best recorded with the use of a convex probe. Interstitial lung lesions may result from many conditions, including cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, non-cardiogenic pulmonary oedema, or interstitial lung disease. Hence difficulties in the differential diagnostics of the above clinical conditions.

Transfusion-related acute lung injury (TRALI) is a life-threatening complication of blood product transfusion characterized by sudden onset hypoxemic respiratory failure with bilateral lung infiltrates and non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema developing within 6 hours of transfusion. It is believed to be under-recognized, particularly among preterm neonates in whom co-existing developmental lung disease adds diagnostic complexity. Here we report the case of a preterm neonate who developed TRALI during a blood transfusion following PDA ligation.

The hemodynamic effects of ventilation can be grouped into three concepts: 1) Spontaneous ventilation is exercise; 2) changes in lung volume alter autonomic tone and pulmonary vascular resistance and can compress the heart in the cardiac fossa; and 3) spontaneous inspiratory efforts decrease intrathoracic pressure, increasing venous return and impeding left ventricular ejection, whereas positive-pressure ventilation decreases venous return and unloads left ventricular ejection. Spontaneous inspiratory efforts may induce acute left ventricular failure and cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Reversing the associated negative intrathoracic pressure swings by using noninvasive continuous positive airway pressure rapidly reverses acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema and improves survival.

Noninvasive ventilation (NIV) has a well-‑established role in the treatment of acute-‑on-‑chronic respiratory failure and cardiogenic pulmonary edema. Its role in acute hypoxemic respiratory failure has been increasingly investigated, but its impact on the management and outcome of the subset of patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is still to be determined. ARDS could be a risk factor for NIV failure, and in these patients, delayed endotracheal intubation can lead to an increased mortality.
