Heart failure is a common reason for hospitalization among older adults and long-term care patients. What strategies can help prevent a recurrence of heart failure, and what types of monitoring for exacerbations are most effective in prevention? How can physicians individualize therapy in this population? How crucial are blood pressure and hypertension control in managing patients with heart failure? Dr. Hosam Kamel, director of geriatrics and extended care, at St. Joseph’s Mercy Health Center in Hot Springs, Arkansas and associate clinical professor of geriatrics at the department of geriatrics at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, discusses the goals of managing patients with heart failure in long-term care, and offers pragmatic advice for physicians in managing patients with heart failure. Dr. Eric Tangalos hosts.
