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)

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.
