Research recommendations coming out of this guidance
Diuretic therapy for managing fluid overload in people with advanced heart failure in the community:- In people with advanced heart failure and significant peripheral fluid overload, what is the clinical and cost effectiveness of oral, subcutaneous and intravenous diuretic therapy in the community?
Cardiac MRI versus other imaging techniques for diagnosing heart failure:- What is the optimal imaging technique for the diagnosis of heart failure?
The impact of atrial fibrillation on the natriuretic peptide threshold for diagnosing heart failure:- What is the optimal NT-proBNP threshold for the diagnosis of heart failure in people with atrial fibrillation?
The impact of advanced kidney disease on the natriuretic peptide threshold for diagnosing heart failure:- What are the optimal NT-proBNP thresholds for diagnosing heart failure in people with stage IIIb, IV or V chronic kidney disease?
Risk tools for predicting non-sudden death in heart failure:- What is the most accurate prognostic risk tool in predicting 1-year mortality from heart failure at specific clinically relevant thresholds (for example, sensitivity, specificity, negative predictive value and positive predictive value at a threshold of 50% risk of mortality at 1 year)?
