Episode 4 - Treatment options in patients with heart failure across the spectrum of left ventricular ejection fraction with a particular interest in the pooling of previous results to gain greater insight. - Dr. Milton Packer
We are joined by Dr. Milton Packer. He is a Distinguished Scholar in Cardiovascular Science at Baylor University Medical Center, Dallas in the United States. He is also a visiting professor at Imperial College London. He is one of the world leaders in the field of heart failure, has been a member of the FDA for over 30 years and founded the Heart Failure society of the America, He has published over 500 peer-reviewed articles, reviews, and editorials along with over 30 book chapters in the field.
For this episode, we will look at what further insights can be gained from pooling these results and hear the potential of empagliflozin as a treatment approach for patients right across the ejection fraction spectrum.
