Heart Failure is a complex clinical syndrome. The heart failure diagnosis alone can scare even the most adept and proficient providers. It is not uncommon to feel as though we don’t want to change the medications for fear of causing harm.
Years of research and collaboration amongst the most respected experts in the heart failure field have proven that neurohormonal dysregulation is what causes the decline of patients with heart failure. When it comes to the medicinal management of heart failure, utilizing guideline directed medical therapy appropriately is misunderstood. It is not merely a pump problem but rather a brain and pump problem. The indications, patient education, up-titration, vital sign parameters, and adjuvant therapies are very specific to the pathology of the failing heart.
