Sep 16, 2017 10:30am ‐ Sep 16, 2017 12:00pm

Credits: None available.


HFpEF remains a challenging clinical syndrome to even define, let alone treat. This session will review how to define HFpEF for clinical practice and study design, how to integrate current diagnostic tools optimally, and how to apply existing and new technologies to advanced phenotyping of HFpEF.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Review the clinical and physiologic information provided by currently available diagnostic techniques in the evaluation of HFpEF.
  2. Assess the indications for techniques in the clinical evaluation of patients with HFPEF.
  3. Recognize the potential of these techniques for the assessment of drug effects in clinical trials.
