Course Overview

This year’s 21st Annual San Diego Heart Failure Symposium for Primary Care and Internal Medicine Physicians will use a virtual platform for providing an up to data analysis of new and emerging trends in the management of patients with heart failure. There have been numerous advances in heart failure over the past year and we plan to highlight the most important ones and to put them into the context of on-going management strategies.


The topics included in this year’s symposium include new approaches for modification of risk factors like hypertension, lipids and diabetes, a deep dive into the management of HFpEF and exciting new approaches for treating patients with amyloid heart disease, insights into newer drugs including the ARNIs, SGLT2 inhibitors, vericiguat, omecamtiv mecarbil and the potassium lowering agents as well as the expanding use of NOACs, role of biomarkers in heart failure management, an overview of devices to detect worsening of heart failure and the treatment of pulmonary arterial hypertension. There will also be updates on the most effective use of pacemakers, defibrillators and wearable devices, and percutaneous and durable mechanical support of the failing heart. 

Target Audience

This course is designed for cardiologists, internists, primary care physicians, nurses, PA’s, PharmD’s and all other allied healthcare professionals with an interest in heart failure.
