ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the use of beta-blockers in heart failure (HF). The author thinks that HF is a common but poorly managed condition. In the Cardiac Insufficiency Bisoprolol Trial II, the Carvedilol Prospective Randomised Cumulative Survival Study (COPERNICUS) and the Metoprolol Randomised Intervention Trial in Congestive Heart Failure, have shown that beta-blocker treatment with bisoprolol, carvedilol and metoprolol reduces mortality in advanced HF patients.
