Evaluating Approaches to Fluid Management in Acute Heart Failure: Current Challenges and Novel Perspectives

  1. Choose the correct statement regarding the use of noninvasive pulmonary fluid level monitoring for the management of acute heart failure.
    Noninvasive pulmonary fluid monitors are water-resistant sensors that can be worn by patients 24 hours a day
    Once placed on a patient's body, it records patient data at several prespecified times throughout the day
    The clinician needs the patient to contact the office to review the data being collected on their pulmonary fluid level
  2. What is the most effective way to detect early pulmonary congestion in patients living with heart failure?
    Teach your patient to do daily weights and report a 5-pound gain immediately to their doctor
    Organize visiting nurse to monitor vital signs once a week
    Utilize internal or external congestion monitoring that transmits pre-symptomatic changes to the clinician
