Drug interactions with commonly used medications for congestive heart failure. Possible drug interactions with moderate to major impact are listed. Individual patient responses may vary. *Additive pharmacological effect (eg, additive hypotensive effects [↓blood pressure (BP)]). ↑ Increase; ↓ Decrease; ACEIs Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors; ARBs Angiotensin receptor blockers; AV Atrioventricular; HR Heart rate.

Algorithm for diagnosis of heart failure. *Useful in selected care settings (eg, emergency room); Some laboratory tests are recommended at the time of initial evaluation if diagnostic suspicion is high (complete blood count, electrolytes, renal function, urinalysis, glucose, lipids, liver enzymes and function, and thyroid function) and others are recommended when clinically indicated (eg, ferritin, antinuclear antibody, rheumatoid factor, metanephrines or HIV); Includes both systolic and diastolic parameters (eg, ejection fraction, transmitral and pulmonary venous flow patterns, or mitral annulus velocities); §Heart failure with preserved systolic function may not be identified on a routine echocardiogram and clinical judgment is required if other indicators point strongly to heart failure as a diagnosis; Magnetic resonance imaging, multislice computed tomography or endomyocardial biopsy
