Congestion

A situation where a demand for a security exceeds supply or vice versa. In both cases, a large change in price is likely because investors will have a difficult time entering or leaving a position at its current price. Congestion can lead to a security trading either below its support level (if supply exceeds demand) or above its resistance level (if demand exceeds supply).

SENSE-HF (Sensitivity of the InSync Sentry OptiVol feature for the Prediction of Heart Failure) is a study designed to evaluate the sensitivity of Medtronic's exclusive OptiVol(R) Fluid Trends feature in predicting HF hospitalizations with signs and/or symptoms of pulmonary congestion.
They include irritation, rhino-conjunctivitis, pulmonary congestion and asthma, fever, malaise and anaphylactic shock.
Increased pressure in the left atrium is a predictor of pulmonary congestion, which is the leading cause of hospitalization for congestive heart failure patients.
Eventually, pulmonary congestion and the resulting breathlessness and fatigue reach a critical point referred to as acute decompensated heart failure.
Patients should also avoid Cardizem LA if they have hypotension (less than 90mm/Hg systolic blood pressure), hypersensitivity to diltiazem or acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary congestion confirmed by x-ray.
CARDIZEM LA is contraindicated in patients with sick sinus syndrome or 2(0) or 3(0) AV block (except in the presence of a functioning ventricular pacemaker), hypotension (<90 mm Hg systolic), demonstrated hypersensitivity to the drug, and acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary congestion documented by x-ray on admission.
Pulmonary congestion is the most important indicator of heart failure, and monitoring it may offer a unique opportunity to protect heart failure patients," said Prof.
Patients should also avoid TIAZAC(R) XC if they have hypotension (less than 90 mm Hg systolic blood pressure), hypersensitivity to diltiazem, or acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary congestion confirmed by x-ray.
Patients should also avoid Cardizem(R) LA if they have hypotension (less than 90 mm Hg systolic blood pressure), hypersensitivity to diltiazem or acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary congestion confirmed by x-ray.
Tiazac, as with all diltiazem formulations, should not be used in patients with severe hypotension (less than 90 mm Hg systolic), patients with acute myocardial infarction and pulmonary congestion documented by X-ray on admission, patients with sick sinus syndrome or 2nd-/3rd-degree AV block (unless used with a functioning ventricular pacemaker) and patients who have demonstrated hypersensitivity to the drug.
