We know that approximately 70% of patients hospitalized with heart failure are iron deficient. Iron deficiency independent from anemia is associated with poor exercise capacity, poor quality of life, and increased mortality in these patients. How can you reduce the risk of rehospitalization and improve outcomes for these iron deficient patients with acute heart failure?
This expert panel discusses the latest data from AHA 2020 around the role of iron deficiency and its correction in hospitalized patients stabilized after an episode of acute heart failure.
