Improved outcomes with SGLT2i in HFpEF and HFmrEF

3' education - Aug. 27, 2022 - Prof. Scott Solomon, MD
**ESC 2022** Prof. Solomon summarizes the results of the DELIVER trial. “We believe that these data support the use of SGLT2i as foundational therapy in patients with HF, regardless of care setting or ejection fraction” said Prof. Solomon.

SGLT2i reduces primary endpoint in HFmrEF and HFpEF

News - Aug. 27, 2022

ESC 2022 The DELIVER trial shows that dapagliflozin reduced the risk of CV death or worsening HF in patients with HFmrEF or HFpEF, with no attenuation of treatment benefit in patients with the highest EF.

SGLT2i improves outcomes in heart failure across entire ejection fraction range

News - Aug. 27, 2022

ESC 2022 A pooled analysis of DAPA-HF and DELIVER was undertaken to examine the effect of dapagliflozin in patient with heart failure across the entire spectrum of ejection fraction.

ARNI does not impair cognitive function in HFpEF or HFmrEF

News - Aug. 26, 2022

ESC 2022 The PERSPECTIVE trial showed that sacubitril/valsartan, compared to valsartan, does not impair cognitive function or cause accumulation of amyloid β-peptides in the brain in patients with HFpEF or HFmrEF.

Similar association of smoking and its cessation with HFpEF and HFrEF

Literature - June 15, 2022 - Ding N, et al. - J Am Coll Cardiol. 2022

Smoking is an important modifiable risk factor for HF. But to what extent does this apply to the 2 phenotypes of HF: HFrEF and HFpEF? And what is the effect of (long-term) smoking cessation? A recent analysis of the ARIC study offers valuable insights.

Improved guideline-directed therapy prescription for HFrEF with electronic health record alert

News - Apr. 19, 2022

ACC 2022 This randomized trial showed that a EHR-based alert led to higher rates of guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) prescription for patients with HFrEF compared with usual care.

Novel potassium binder maintains lower K+ levels in HFrEF

News - Apr. 16, 2022

ACC 2022 In the DIAMOND trial, use of patiromer not only resulted in maintenance of lower levels of potassium (K+) compared to placebo, but also in a lower risk of hyperkalemia events and in enablement of RAASi therapy in HFrEF patients on RAASi therapy.

Reduced sodium intake in HF does not lower clinical events

News - Apr. 15, 2022

ACC 2022 Although a reduction in sodium intake in HF patients did not result in a reduction of all-cause mortality of CV hospitalization compared to usual care, patient-centered outcomes were improved.

Quality of care improved with EHR-based intervention for patients with HF

3' education - Apr. 13, 2022 - Tariq Ahmad, MD
Tariq Ahmad discusses the results of the PROMPT-HF study that tested the hypothesis that targeted electronic health record (EHR) alerts recommending guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT) for HFrEF would lead to higher rates of GDMT prescription compared with usual care.

Clinical events with low-sodium diet in HF

3' education - Apr. 12, 2022 - Prof. Justin Ezekowitz
**ACC 2022** The SODIUM-HF trial showed that a dietary intervention to reduce sodium intake did not reduce clinical events in ambulatory patients with HF. However, sodium reduction improved quality of live and NYHA class.
