The ejection fraction measures the percentage of blood pumped out of the left ventricle with each contraction and normally ranges from 55–70%. In this lesson, you’ll learn the difference between heart failure with reduced, preserved, and mid-range ejection fractions (i.e., HFrEF, HFpEF, and HFmrEF, respectively).
Do you know what combination of diuretic, ACE inhibitor or ARB, and beta-blocker is best for your patient with heart failure? You will master the appropriate ACC / AHA guideline-directed medical therapy for patients in stage A, B, C, and D heart failure, as well as learn to treat acute decompensations. Confidently assess and manage heart failure patients with this course.
Master the different stages of heart failure, prescribe the appropriate medications, and manage acute decompensations.
