Acute and Advanced Heart Failure Knowledge Centre

Welcome to the AAHF Knowledge Centre. Here we provide overviews of acute heart failure and advanced heart failure, including epidemiology, diagnosis and treatment.

The case studies section has been updated in August 2018 with 'Postoperative atrial fibrillation and heart failure'. Additional case studies will be added to this section over the coming months.

New video presentations have been added in May 2018 from the 38th International Symposium on Intensive Care and Emergency Medicine, and include 'Efficacy and safety of levosimendan in the light of clinical practice' from Dr Stefaan Bouchez, while Professor Sven-Erik Ricksten discusses renal effects of levosimendan. In addition, the advanced heart failure section has been updated with insights and recommendations from the 2018 Heart Failure Association for the European Society of Cardiology (HFA-ESC) position statement on advanced heart failure.
