ABSTRACT
The article reports a case in which a patient with acute decompensated heart failure (ADHF) was treated with nesiritide. Traditionally, the pharmacological approach to treating patients with ADHF has centered on the use of intravenous diuretics, inotropic agents and vasodilators. The symptoms presented by the patient upon admission are detailed. ADHF works in the patient by increasing contractility of the cardiac myocytes and increasing cardiac output.
