Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Nonpharmacologic therapy is an integral part of the management of elderly patients with heart failure. Reinforcement of dietary sodium restriction and other nutritional concerns are critical features of therapy. Quality standards for the management of patients with heart failure are being developed, and the implementation of these standards is a goal of clinicians. A multidisciplinary approach to elderly patients with heart failure is beneficial.
