Watch this programme seeking to educate physicians in the changing landscape of the medical management of heart failure.
In the main event, Prof Martin Cowie (Royal Brompton Hospital, UK) chairs a roundtable discussion, and is joined by Dr Kieran Docherty (University of Glasgow, UK), Dr Bharathi Upadhya (Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, US) and Prof Richard Hobbs (University of Oxford, UK). During this roundtable, our expert panel discuss two patient cases and their treatment strategies based on recent guidelines and data updates. The panel also analyse survey data, discuss the importance of EF, and the role of primary care in ongoing heart failure management.
The final part explores how each of the patients has responded and how their quality of life and functional capacity has changed as a result. Dr Docherty also discusses the main challenges that he experienced during the management of his patient, and shares his advice on how complex patients like these can be treated.
