Name[edit]

Is there a difference between "Acute decompensated heart failure" and "acute heart failure"? Is there a source for this name (e.g. ICD-10, MeSH, ...) ? Otherwise I suggest a move. --Steven Fruitsmaak (Reply) 16:28, 7 December 2008 (UTC)

Overlap[edit]

I'd say we need to avoid overlap between this article and heart failure and pulmonary edema, both of which discuss the diagnosis and treatment in a fair amount of detail.

doi:10.1016/j.jacc.2013.05.019 is the new ACC/AHA heart failure guideline. JFW | T@lk 16:36, 6 October 2013 (UTC)
