Clinically, because these patients have a very small left ventricular size, they are usually much more sensitive to volume loading than patients with HFrEF. Diagnosis and Evaluation of Heart Failure Clinical Evaluation Approximately half of all heart failure hospital admissions result from HFpEF. There is no difference in mortality between patients with HFpEF and HFrEF. For both groups of patients, there is about a 50% survival rate at 3 years after presenting with symptoms of heart failure. Classic symptoms of acute heart failure include exertional dyspnea, paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea, orthopnea, and peripheral edema.

Nitrates improve myocardial oxygen supply and reduce myocardial oxygen demand by their effects on coronary and systemic vasodilation, respectively. Nitrates have not been proved to reduce the frequency of cardiovascular events (myocardial infarction, death). Two categories of nitrates are indicated for patients with stable angina pectoris: sublingual or spray nitroglycerin (for emergency use) and topical or oral nitroglycerin (for chronic, daily use). The use of daily nitrates requires periodic nitrate-free intervals (typically at night) to avoid the development of tolerance.

Heart Failure Pathophysiology of Heart Failure Heart failure is a complex clinical syndrome in which cardiac output is insufficient for meeting the demands of the body, causing symptoms of exertional dyspnea and fatigue. Approximately one half of patients with heart failure have left ventricular systolic dysfunction, or heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF); the other half have normal systolic function, or heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Regardless of whether left ventricular ejection fraction is reduced or preserved, symptoms of exertional dyspnea and fatigue are the same, and assessment of ejection fraction is required to differentiate between these two entities.
