QRS Duration to Predict Mortality Risk in Patient with ICD & Heart Failure

Purpose:

To predict the mortality rate in a patient with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and NYHA Class III heart failure.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases, Cardiac Electrophysiology

Objective:

other testing, response to therapy, complication detection

ICD-10:

I50.0, Z95.0

Description:

Bode-Schnurbus et al evaluated QRS duration as a marker for death in patients with an implantable cardioverter defibrillator (ICD) and heart failure. This can help identify patients who may benefit from closer monitoring and more aggressive therapy. The authors are from the University of Heidelberg in Mannheim.
