Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Most patients with acute heart failure can be successfully treated with conventional drugs. Vasodilator therapy is helpful and may be lifesaving for some patients. However, it has not been established that long-term vasodilator therapy will prolong life, although symptoms of heart failure are improved. The combination of vasodilators and dobutamine is particularly useful for the critically ill patient with low cardiac output.
