Better treatment selection and improved therapies -- key to improving prognosis in acute HF
Date:5/30/2009

gh diuretics or other means, patients with high blood pressure should receive mainly vasodilators, and patients with low cardiac output should be treated with inotropic agents to improve the force of the heart muscle's contraction.3

* Improved therapies. Many new agents are currently under development, said Professor Metra, which include adenosine type 1 receptors antagonists to enhance the diuretic effects of furosemide and increase renal blood flow, new vasodilators with different mechanisms of action, and new inotropic agents.

"Better treatment selection and the development of new agents give us some hope that we will finally be able to improve the symptoms and prognosis of such a large patient population as that suffering from acute heart failure," says Professor Metra. However, he also emphasised that urgent therapy is one of the key recommendations of the latest European guidelines.
