"...Key Points:
  • Always address ABCs.
  • Rule out more common causes of acute decompensated heart failure first (respiratory illnesses, arrhythmias, renal failure, ACS, uncontrolled HTN, medication non-compliance, and dietary indiscretions).
  • Consider reversible causes of HF (e.g., NSAIDs, alcohol) and stop the offending agent.
  • There may be more than one precipitant leading to acute decompensated heart failure.
  • Always evaluate for ACS."
