Focus on BP Control for "Diastolic" or Preserved Ejection Fraction Heart Failure
Questions will come up about how to treat "DIASTOLIC" heart failure...or heart failure with a PRESERVED ejection fraction (HFpEF).
Over HALF of heart failure patients have this type, which is due to a stiff left ventricle that can't adequately fill.
This is different from "SYSTOLIC" heart failure...or heart failure with a REDUCED ejection fraction (HFrEF). These patients have a weak left ventricle that can't pump effectively.
