The 2022 ACC Heart Failure Guidelines: What Do They Mean for Your Practice?
Published: 27 June 2022
Taking the recent ACC heart failure guideline updates as its core theme, this symposium, part of Heart Failure Online 2022, provides a succinct overview of the changes with one of the guideline’s primary authors.
The faculty then consider how guidelines have evolved to accommodate the growing number of foundational treatments for heart failure and how we are moving towards personalised care. We also take a look at HFpEF, and assess how our treatment options have changed and what else can be expected for this population.
