Abstract

The goal of the Society of Chest Pain Centers Heart Failure Discharge Recommendations Committee was to review the available literature and currently published guidelines to provide recommendations for acute heart failure providers regarding observation unit discharge criteria. Explicit and validated criteria for discharging patients from the emergency department or observation unit are lacking. We propose the utilization of criteria that reflect improvement in fluid overload, which is the most common feature of patients admitted with heart failure.
