Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the association of nursing diagnoses (NDs) identified for patients with heart failure (HF) based on their hemodynamic profiles. METHOD: Analytical, cross-sectional study conducted in the emergency room of a public hospital in a large cardiology center in Brazil. One hundred medical records of patients with HF whose hemodynamic profile had been established were analyzed. RESULTS: The main NDs identified were risk of infection, bathing self-care deficit, risk for decreased cardiac output, risk for falls, and excess fluid volume. There was no statistically significant difference (p > .05) between the different hemodynamic profiles and the ND found. CONCLUSION AND IMPLICATIONS: Nurses need to develop skills for improving their diagnostic abilities to ensure implementation of consistent interventions.
