An update of the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) Heart Failure Guidelines has recently been published following the results of major new trials that should change the management of patients with heart failure.
Since the 2021 ESC Heart Failure Guidelines were published the EMPEROR-Preserved trial and the DELIVER trial were conducted with the SGLT2 inhibitors empagliflozin and dapagliflozin, respectively. The focused update now recommends an SGLT2 inhibitor (dapagliflozin or empagliflozin) in patients with HFmrEF and HFpEF to reduce the risk of heart failure hospitalisation or cardiovascular death.
In this programme primary care expert Dr Yassir Javaid and his fellow expert cardiologist Dr Ravi Assomull discuss the new guidance in regards to the modern management of heart failure and answer questions such as:
- What do the new trial data tell us?
- How is this reflected in the update?
- How will this impact me in general practice?
- In specific, what changes do I need to make to current routine treatment for HFpEF?
- What else is new within the guidance?
