Join SelectScience® and senior clinical specialist Dr. James Aguanno for a comprehensive review of heart failure: the pathophysiological state in which the heart fails to pump enough blood to meet the demands of the body.
In this fully accredited webinar, the classifications of heart failure will be defined, as well as the signs, symptoms and causes of heart failure, with a full review of the relevant treatment options.
The American College of Cardiology Foundation (ACCF) and American Heart Association (AHA) heart failure guidelines, for both ambulatory outpatients with suspected heart failure and hospitalized acute patients, will be presented.
Particular attention will also be paid to the natriuretic peptides – NT-proBNP and BNP – in the diagnosis of heart failure.
Attend this webinar to learn:
- The definition of heart failure, the underlying causes, and the signs and symptoms

- The clinical importance of both NT-proBNP and BNP in patients with heart failure
- The multiple options available for the treatment of patients with heart failure
