Acute Heart Failure Management

Acute Heart Failure Management

  • Treatment of pulmonary edema should be focused on ‘fluid redistribution’ and not ‘fluid removal’.
  • First line: Nitroglycerin and NIV (start ASAP)
  • Second line: ACE-I (in addition or instead of NTG)
  • Third line: Diuretic like furosemide
  • Morphine has NO ROLE in modern management of cardiogenic pulmonary edema
