Abstract

in English, Spanish

BACKGROUND:

Viewing heart failure as a clinical syndrome delays treatment and impairs prognosis, which leads to the question: Is it possible to make an early diagnosis based on echocardiography studies?

METHODS:

It was carried out a review of medical records of asymptomatic heart disease patients, with no treatment, who were studied by echocardiogram in order to measure cardiac output (CO) and total peripheral vascular resistance (TPVR), for which mean blood pressure was calculated. It is described the hemodynamic regime on the basis of the proportion of three integrated groups according to CO and TPVR.

RESULTS:

The hemodynamic regime in 200 heart disease patients was hypokinetic in 36%, hyperkinetic in 17% and eukinetic in 47%.

CONCLUSIONS:

Non-invasive hemodynamic study identified asymptomatic heart failure in one third of the cases.
