DIAGNOSIS While obtaining a clinical history, the clinician must pose questions directed toward ascertaining the presence and severity of CHF such as dyspnea, fatigue, reduced exercise tolerance, anxiety, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, and cough.
When we performed a logistic regression with acute destabilized HF as the dependent variable and age, sex, eGFR, history of acute destabilized HF, and the presence of orthopnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, nocturnal cough, jugular venous distension, pulmonary rales, third heart sound, and peripheral edema as independent variables (excluding MR-proANP, BNP, and NT-proBNP), we obtained a diagnostic accuracy of 79% for this statistical model.
Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, the complaint of frequently awakening with shortness of breath and coughing during the night, is common.
