Empagliflozin to Treat Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction

Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) accounts for 50% of chronic heart failure cases, and effective therapies have been limited.

Upon successful completion of this application-based course, participants should be able to:
1. Summarize current heart failure management strategies and guidelines
2. Describe the use of SGLT2i’s in heart failure management
3. Interpret the results of the EMPEROR-PRESERVED Trial
4. Discuss the validity of the EMPEROR-PRESERVED Trial
5. Apply the EMPEROR-PRESERVED Trial results to a patient case
