    Preserving hope for patients with Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF)?

    Preserving hope for patients with Heart Failure with Preserved Ejection Fraction (HFpEF)?

    Although guideline-directed medical therapy substantially improves morbidity and mortality in patients with heart failure with reduced ejection fraction (HFrEF), treatments that clearly improve outcomes in those with HF and an EF >40% remain elusive. Unfortunately, the incidence and prevalence of HF are expected to substantially increase in the coming decades.  More evidence and effective treatments for those with HF with preserved ejection fraction are clearly needed.  Enter the EMPEROR-Preserved trial.

    Spice Up Your Sleep Life with Saffron

    Spice Up Your Sleep Life with Saffron

    Every day, millions suffer from poor sleep that disrupts their lives, and long-term sleep disorders can cause attention deficits, mood disorders, anxiety, and depression. Several prescription treatment options for sleep are available but they often have undesirable side effects and can lead to tolerance and dependency. Thus, a natural product that has been documented to improve sleep with minimal adverse events may be a better choice.

    Will a Dual GIP/GLP-1 Receptor Agonist SURPASS the Crowd?

    Will a Dual GIP/GLP-1 Receptor Agonist SURPASS the Crowd?

    There are now over 30 unique therapeutic entities (and countless different products!) to treat hyperglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM).  While the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists improve glycemic control, renal, and cardiovascular outcomes and induce significant weight loss, drugs that target more than one incretin hormone may have even greater therapeutic benefits.

    Cut It Out! Removing EHR Allergy Warnings to Improve Antimicrobial Stewardship

    Cut It Out! Removing EHR Allergy Warnings to Improve Antimicrobial Stewardship

    WARNING: Patient has a penicillin allergy! Do you want to continue with this cephalexin order?


    Although these warnings are commonplace, immunologic cross-reactivity between penicillins and cephalosporins is uncommon. When B-lactams are indicated as first-line therapy for therapy, cephalosporins are often avoided if the patient has a penicillin allergy listed. Would the removal of EHR warnings about potential penicillin allergies when cephalosporins are ordered be helpful or harmful?

    What’s the Right Dose of Aspirin in Patients with Heart Disease?

    What’s the Right Dose of Aspirin in Patients with Heart Disease?

    There is no consensus regarding the preferred dosage of aspirin in patients with atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) and this has led to variability in prescribing patterns. This is likely due to the lack of head-to-head trials evaluating different aspirin doses and data weighing the clinical benefits and adverse effects experienced with aspirin. Until now?
