Transthoracic Echocardiography​

To evaluate left ventricular function, an echocardiography is typically performed. According to NICE (National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence) recommendations, this is frequently asked for when patients exhibit heart failure-related symptoms. Despite the fact that clinical data and fundamental studies frequently reveal patients with severe left ventricular systolic dysfunction,4-6 echocardiography can measure the severity and pinpoint the underlying reason. It may be more challenging to diagnose clinically, but many heart failure patients also have concurrent or predominant diastolic dysfunction which should be suspected in patients who have heart failure symptoms but normal systolic function, especially the elderly and those with hypertension.
