Heart failure may be classified based on the left ventricular ejection fraction.
Also Known As
heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF)
systolic heart failure
heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF)
diastolic heart failure
(1) current left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF)
(2) previous left ventricular ejection fraction
HFpEF, improved (from HFrEF)
41 to 49%
• Several additional categories could be described based on the patterns of current and previous LVEF.
Criteria for HFpEF (see also 06.11.20):
(1) clinical signs and symptoms of heart failure
(2) preserved LVEF
(3) abnormal left ventricular diastolic dysfunction (on cardiac catheterization or Doppler echocardiography)
(4) exclusion of noncardiac causes
