Derangements in potassium levels are associated with poor outcomes in patients with heart failure. At the same time, suboptimal use of renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitor (RAASi) therapies is associated with an increased risk of death. So how do we as clinicians balance these risks?
This discussion focuses on how providers can maximize the use of RAASi therapies in patients with heart failure while simultaneously employing potassium binders to manage hyperkalemia.
