Dr. Julio Altamirano Heart Failure management: where are we today?
About the event
Doctor Altamirano, cardiologist in Nicaragua, reviews where we are today with Heart Failure (HF) management. HF is associated with a bad prognosis and the burden of the disease tends to increase with time ¹. This reinforces the need to act early in patients with heart failure and particularly in those who are in vulnerable stages when the risk of mortality is increased ².
