What is the best measure to take when a patient’s heart stops pumping properly? Take this course to get deep into the heart of medication optimization, along with the causes, risk factors, and clinical presentations of heart failure (HF). Participants will engage in the particulars of the 2-minute assessment, the Forrester classifications for mortality, and the diagnostic algorithm for suspected HF.

Diuretics and guideline-directed medical therapy charts are analyzed and discussed alongside what medications to use and which medications to avoid in the management of HF. Insightful knowledge regarding various treatment options, from nonpharmacologic behavior modifications to transplants and mechanical assist devices are also discussed.
