of potassium. If urea and creatinine begin to increase significantly this may be a sign of the patient’s renal perfusion being compromised by the intensity of diuresis. This may require modification of the diuretic regime or concurrent administration of agents that may improve perfusion such as inotropic drugs.
Have the aims of therapy been achieved?
If the aims of treatment have been achieved – well done! You should now be in a position to transfer the patient from their acute treatment protocol onto a more suitable chronic regime.
If the aims of treatment have not been achieved then intensification of therapy may be necessary. Re-evaluate the original diagnosis and go back through the various steps above to choose which treatment is most likely to help achieve your aims.
Has treatment been associated with the development of any complications?

Introduction
When a disaster strikes there is a period of time where there is very little information of who has been impacted, how they have been impacted and what their immediate needs may be. Therefore, decision making is based
on assumptions and previous experience until further intelligence is collated and interrogated, allowing
for impacts and needs to be supported by “ground truthing”. The volume, complexity and fluid nature of this work demands collaboration across a diversity of people, disciplines and organisations.1 This is achieved by collecting real time data from organisation who
are at the coal face. It provides the evidence base for strategic planning, as well as baseline information upon which situation and response monitoring systems will rely. Additionally, the information gathered will allow the response team to analyse and make decisions
on support actions, confirm resources and deploy the required level of response for the affected community. It helps to build a picture of current, emerging and diminishing needs. Collectively, this creates situational awareness of the disaster, which requires constant “checking in” due to the fluid nature of disasters.
Veterinary professionals are key actors and are instrumental for animal welfare disaster management decision making. They have local knowledge and the ability to collect raw data through their networks of clients and communities, participate in ground truthing, can identify any emerging issues that may require forethought and are subject matter experts (SMEs). Collaborative intelligence is vital for crisis decision- making. However, for the data to be meaningful it requires an understanding of what intelligence is needed (purpose) and how stress can impact collection and interpretation of the data.

  If complications have developed are they sufficiently severe to warrant decreasing the intensity of heart failure therapy? For instance it may be necessary to reduce diuretic doses in patients that develop azotaemia or hypotension. Other drugs may need to be added
to the treatment regime in an effort to address the complications observed.
