  • Overview

    Despite the use of guideline-directed medical therapy (GDMT), many heart failure (HF) patients may experience worsening symptoms and disease progression. There is now an FDA-approved device that works with GDMT and uses the baroreflex to improve HF-related physiological effects and clinical consequences. Tune in to keep up with baroreflex activation therapy, its mechanism of action, and the associated improved patient outcomes.
