1 Outline Pathophysiology: Mat Maurer, MD Irving Assistant Professor of Medicine Definitions and Classifications Epidemiology Muscle and Chamber Function Pathophysiology : Definitions An inability of the heart to pump blood at a sufficient rate to meet the metabolic demands of the body (e.g. oxygen and cell nutrients) at rest and during effort or to do so only if the cardiac filling pressures are abnormally high. A complex clinical syndrome characterized by abnormalities in cardiac function and neurohormonal regulation, which are accompanied by effort intolerance, fluid retention and a reduced longevity A complex clinical syndrome that can result from any structural or functional cardiac disorder that impairs the ability of the ventricle to fill with or eject blood. Not a disease A syndrome From "syn meaning "together and "dromos" meaning "a running. A group of signs and symptoms that occur together and characterize a particular abnormality. Diverse etiologies Several mechanisms Ischemia Hypertrophy Arterial Stiffness Atrial Fibrillation Diabetes Infiltrative Disease Hypertension CAD Valvular Disease Pericardial Disease Ischemic cardiomyopathy Valvular cardiomyopathy Hypertensive cardiomyopathy. Inflammatory cardiomyopathy Metabolic cardiomyopathy General system disease Muscular dystrophies. Neuromuscular disorders. Sensitivity and toxic reactions. Peripartal cardiomyopathy Circulation. 1996;93:
