In Part Two, we first examine the problem of decompensation, which occurs when the compensatory mechanisms can no longer be sustained and the heart fails. The demonstration is followed by a triage physical examination of a patient presenting to an ED with early symptoms of heart failure. Next, there is a discussion of diagnostic techniques, including important laboratory studies and imaging modalities. The American Heart Association classification system for staging heart failure is then presented, finishing with a brief overview of current medical therapies for this condition.
