ObjectivesThe aim of the study was to determine the minimally clinically important difference (MCID) for breathlessness due to chronic heart failure (CHF). BackgroundThe measurement of breathlessness is difficult because it is subjective and multifac... Read More

Does the physical examination still have a role in patients with suspected heart failure? (2011)
Journal Article
Damy, T., Kallvikbacka-Bennett, A., Zhang, J., Goode, K., Buga, L., Hobkirk, J., …Clark, A. L. (2011). Does the physical examination still have a role in patients with suspected heart failure?. European journal of heart failure, 13(12), (1340-1348). doi:10.1093/eurjhf/hfr128. ISSN 1388-9842

AIMS: The prognostic value of signs of congestion in patients suspected of having chronic heart failure (CHF) is unknown. Our objectives were to define their prevalence and specificity in diagnosing CHF and to determine their prognostic value in pati... Read More
