SYNOPSIS

Heart failure is a life-limiting condition which can lead patients with disabling and isolating symptoms for many years. A continuum-of-care concept will benefit the individual patient with the development of new approaches in treatment and primary lifestyle changes. This symposium will provide attendees the opportunity to gain knowledge on current insights and several medical management options for heart failure such as: acute heart failure to chronic heart failure management, reviewing the treatment for pulmonary hypertension, diagnosis and novel imaging modalities and biomarkers with case to case discussions.
