On this episode, we are joined by Dr. Spencer Carter, MD and Dr. Kyle Fischer, PharmD, to discuss preserved ejection fraction heart failure. Dr. Carter is a cardiologist finishing his fellowship that is focused on heart failure and cardiac transplant. Dr. Fischer is currently a PGY1 general clinical pharmacy resident. We begin by discussing some background information including pathophysiology and the clinical differences of HFpEF compared to HFrEF. We then review the medications often utilized in HFpEF. We finish with a deep dive into the new data surrounding sacubitril/valsartan in chronic heart failure (PARAGON HF) and the SGLT-2 inhibitors (EMPEROR-Preserved, DELIVER).
