Patients with heart failure require optimal management to ensure symptom management and prevent disease progression. Current Heart Failure Guidelines recommend differentiating heart failure with preserved ejection fraction from heart failure with reduced ejection fraction to determine the best plan of care. As noted in the guidelines, all patients with heart failure also benefit from careful management of the co-existing medical conditions that impact cardiac function. Complementing information presented in the webinar, “Heart Failure Guidelines: New Treatment Options”, Dr. Cheryl Westlake will explain the diagnosis of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction and the latest recommendations for managing this commonly under-recognized disorder. Dr. Westlake will also review the recommendations for managing hypertension, anemia and sleep-disordered breathing, three comorbidities that impact the severity of heart failure. A case study will be used to illustrate the application of heart failure guidelines to patient care. This is Part 2 of a special two-part AACN series.

• Describe how the two major categories of heart failure are differentiated based on ejection fraction
• Apply guideline-directed strategies for managing heart failure with preserved ejection fraction
• Identify current recommendations for the management of hypertension, anemia and sleep disordered breathing in patients with heart failure

Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
