  • Overview

    With more effective ways to manage hyperkalemia, is it still a challenge in 2023? Chairperson Ileana Piña, MD, and faculty members cardiologist Javed Butler, MD, and nephrologist Patrick Rossignol, MD, use case-based vignettes to provide expert analysis regarding hyperkalemia in patients with HFrEF who are on RAASi therapy. Tune in for insights on applying clinical trial data to the unique challenges of complex cases and learn how a guideline-based approach, innovative treatments, and emerging data are achieving successful outcomes in patients with heart failure with hyperkalemia.
