Given the increasing number of drugs available for the treatment of heart failure and associated diseases like hypertension and hypercholesterolemia, as well as the different patient types who present in the clinic, it appears increasingly obvious that the same therapeutic regimen cannot be used for all patients. Tailoring Heart Failure Therapy guides the practicing physician in the day-to-day choice of therapy for the many different patients with heart failure. Experts in this field have enlisted the help of their colleagues and peers to offer valuable, practical advice as to the best options for treating each individual patient. The first chapter outlines the "general treatment rules" for chronic heart failure, and the following chapters each focus on the treatment of special categories of patients with chronic heart failure, comparing these to the "general rule." Categories include older patients, women, pregnant women and minority ethnic groups, as well as cardiomyopathy, renal failure and heart failure patients. Special consideration is given to heart failure patients with genuine depression.
