CorConsult Rx: Evidence-Based Medicine and Pharmacy

Oct 3, 2022

On this episode, we review the data that lead to some SGLT-2 inhibitors being used routinely in heart failure. We discuss the initial cardiovascular safety studies that initially showed heart failure benefit in this class. Then we look as some of the newer studies that have looked at empagliflozin and dapagliflozin in heart failure patients (with and without diabetes as a comorbidity).
