Medication

Most people with heart failure are treated with medication. Often you will need to take two or three different medicines.

Some of the main medicines for heart failure include:

  • ACE inhibitors

  • beta-blockers

  • angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs)

  • hydralazine with nitrate

  • diuretics

  • aldosterone antagonists

  • sacubitril valsartan

  • ivabradine

Devices

Some people with heart failure will need to have a procedure to implant a small device in their chest that can help control their heart's rhythm.

I implant the following devices 

  • Cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT)

  • Pacemaker implantation

  • Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICD)
