Abstract

In recent times, there have been many developments in therapies for acute heart failure, in contrast to the preceding 20 years. These have been mainly fuelled by new and expanding knowledge about the pathophysiology of heart failure, which has allowed for insight into potential therapeutic strategies. This review will examine the key emerging therapies for acute heart failure, in light of available pathophysiological and clinical evidence. (Intern Med J 2003; 33: 515−520)
