In this video, Prof Alexandre Mebazaa (University Paris 7, FR) looks at the optimisation strategies used to treat acute heart failure (AHF). His presentation aims to highlight that:

  • Acute heart failure involves both left and right-sided ventricular failure 
  • Symptomatic relief may not correlate with improved outcomes 
  • Acute heart failure can affect other organs such as the kidneys and liver
  • Pre-discharge oral HF therapies should be optimised
