SESSION TITLE: Cardiovascular Disease

SESSION TYPE: Original Investigation Poster

PRESENTED ON: Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 01:30 PM - 02:30 PM

PURPOSE: Heart Failure (HF) is more prevalent in African Americans (AAs) than in Non Hispanic whites and imposes a higher rate of morbidity, mortality and 30-day readmissions. In general cohorts, AAs have also been shown to have a higher prevalence of concomitant comorbidities including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pulmonary hypertension (PH) and others. However, there is paucity of data looking at the impact of these conditions in AAs with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF). The purpose of this study is to describe clinical characteristics, comorbidities, indices of cardiac structure and function, and their impact on 30-day readmission rates in an urban AA population admitted with ADHF.
