  • Overview

    Heart failure and chronic kidney disease can go hand in hand in your patients, and when they do, there are often added comorbidities such as diabetes. If your patients on RAASi therapy develop hyperkalemia, what should you do? Join Drs. Patrick Rossignol and Antoni Bayés-Genís as they consult on a patient with heart failure who has multiple comorbidities and discuss the impact of hyperkalemia in these complex patients.
