Take Home Points
  1. Measuring the left atrial pressure with E/e’ ratio may improve accuracy of ultrasound diagnosis of acute heart failure.
  2. The combined lung and echo protocol in this small study had 100% sensitivity and 98.5% specificity for diagnosing acute heart failure, but limitations include a poor gold standard and lack of blinding.
