New heart failure guidelines explained

Comprehensive new European guidelines for heart failure, including the first ARNI therapy recommendations, were unveiled at the Heart Failure 2016 congress in Florence last week.  

Associate Professor John Atherton, Director of Cardiology at Royal Brisbane Hospital, attended the meeting and was one of only four non-European experts involved in reviewing the guideline document. He spoke to Cardiology Update about what he sees as three key changes in the new guidelines.
