Episode 232: A passing podcast for the failing heart

In episode 232, Mike and James get to all the evidence around drugs for heart failure. We talk about furosemide, ACE inhibitors, beta-blockers and ARBs. The bottom line is that we have good evidence for reduction in mortality and heart failure admissions however the evidence for symptomatic control is surprisingly absent and both our hearts fail a little bit because of that news.
