The treatment of heart failure with ACE inhibitors, especially following acute myocardial infarction, is now well established. Several excellent studies have convincingly demonstrated increased survival and reduced morbidity necessitating fewer hospital admissions. In the Acute Infarction Ramipril Efficacy (AIRE) study 5 mg b.d. of the ACE inhibitor ramipril were given to patients with some clinical evidence of heart failure, even if transient, 3-10 days after myocardial infarction. After an… 
Most Heart Failure Patients Die from Pump Failure: Implications for Therapy
Patients with optimally treated patients are at greater risk for the consequences of pump failure, and a priority for current research should be therapies that reduce pump failure death and hospitalization for more cost-effective management of the disease.

Effect of ramipril on morbidity and mode of death among survivors of acute myocardial infarction with clinical evidence of heart failure. A report from the AIRE Study Investigators.
Ramipril reduces mortality and progression to resistant heart failure among patients with evidence of heart failure early after myocardial infarction and appears to be a major factor contributing to the reduction in mortality both by reducing circulatory failure and by reducing sudden death.
