New medication for chronic heart failure

  • 0

It’s not available to the public just yet, but it’s already being called a potential “Game-changer” for people living with chronic heart failure.

It’s a pill that may not only help them live longer, but it’s also expected to improve a heart failure patient’s quality of life.

Researchers conducted the largest study ever of a heart failure treatment.

They found this new drug, which comes in pill-form and is taken twice a day, was much better at allowing people with chronic heart failure to live longer and reducing heart failure hospitalizations when compared to those who received standard care.

Researchers say the new medication is thought to reduce the strain on the failing heart and promotes the ability of the heart muscle to recover.

Complete findings for this study can be found in the “New England Journal of Medicine.”
