Outline Provides Guidance for Management of Heart Failure Patients During COVID-19 Pandemic


A scientific statement outlining unique considerations and suggestions for managing heart failure patients during the COVID-19 pandemic was issued in September 2021 by the Heart Failure Society of America, and Anuradha Lala, MD, Assistant Professor of Medicine (Cardiology) at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, led the effort to advance this work.
