Epidemiological and clinical studies suggest that HF with a preserved ejection fraction will become the more common form of HF which clinicians will encounter. The spectrum of diastolic disease extends from the asymptomatic phase to fulminant cardiac failure. These patients are commonly encountered in operating rooms and critical care units. A clearer understanding of the underlying pathophysiology and clinical implications of HF with a preserved ejection fraction is fundamental to directing further research and to evaluate interventions. This review highlights the impact of diastolic dysfunction and HF with a preserved ejection fraction during the perioperative period and during critical illness.
