Therapy of congestive heart failure in elderly persons.
Compr Ther. 1997 Oct; 23(10):639-47.CT

Abstract

LVEF should be measured in all elderly persons with CHF Underlying causes and precipitating causes of CHF should be treated. Persons with CHF associated with abnormal LVEF should be treated with a low sodium diet, diuretics, and ACE inhibitors. If CHF persists, digoxin should be added. If CHF still persists, isosorbide dinitrate plus hydralazine should be added. If CHF still persists, a beta blocker should also be added. However, calcium channel blockers should not be used. Persons with CHF associated with normal LVEF should be treated with a low sodium diet, diuretics, and ACE inhibitors. If CHF persists, a beta blocker, isosorbide dinitrate plus hydralazine, or a calcium channel blocker should be added to the therapeutic regimen. If sinus rhythm is present, digoxin should not be used. Persons with CHF and abnormal or normal LVEF unable to tolerate ACE inhibitors should be treated with losartan.
