Journal Article
Torabi, A., Cleland, J. G. F., Sherwi, N., Atkin, P., Panahi, H., Kilpatrick, E., …Rigby, A. (2016). Influence of case definition on incidence and outcome of acute coronary syndromes. Open heart, 3(2), e000487. doi:10.1136/openhrt-2016-000487

© 2016, BMJ Publishing Group. All rights reserved. Objective: Acute coronary syndromes (ACS) are common, but their incidence and outcome might depend greatly on how data are collected. We compared case ascertainment rates for ACS and myocardial infar... Read More

Abnormalities of the ventilatory equivalent for carbon dioxide in patients with chronic heart failure (2012)
Journal Article
Ingle, L., Sloan, R., Carroll, S., Goode, K., Cleland, J. G., & Clark, A. L. (2012). Abnormalities of the ventilatory equivalent for carbon dioxide in patients with chronic heart failure. Pulmonary Medicine, 2012, (589164). doi:10.1155/2012/589164. ISSN 2090-1844

Introduction. The relation between minute ventilation (VE) and carbon dioxide production (VCO(2)) can be characterised by the instantaneous ratio of ventilation to carbon dioxide production, the ventilatory equivalent for CO(2) (VEqCO(2)). We hypothe... 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

ObjectiveTo quantify the proportion of patients attending a community heart failure clinic with left ventricular systolic impairment who might be suitable for ivabradine therapy.BackgroundHigh resting heart rate is an important and potentially modifi... Read More

The prognostic value of individual NT-proBNP values in chronic heart failure does not change with advancing age (2009)
Journal Article
Frankenstein, L., Clark, A. L., Goode, K., Ingle, L., Remppis, A., Schellberg, D., …Zugck, C. (2009). The prognostic value of individual NT-proBNP values in chronic heart failure does not change with advancing age. Heart, 95(10), 825-829. doi:10.1136/hrt.2008.158626

Background: It is unclear whether age-related increases in N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) represent a normal physiological process - possibly affecting the prognostic power - of NT-proBNP - or reflect age-related subclinical pat... Read More

A comparison of patient and physician-rated New York Heart Association class in a community-based heart failure clinic (2008)
Journal Article
Clark, A. L., Nabb, S., Cleland, J. G., & Goode, K. M. (2008). A comparison of patient and physician-rated New York Heart Association class in a community-based heart failure clinic. Journal of cardiac failure, 14(5), (379-387). doi:10.1016/j.cardfail.2008.01.014. ISSN 1071-9164

The timing of development and subsequent clinical course of heart failure after a myocardial infarction (2008)
Journal Article
