1. Hormones involved in cardiovascular regulation are influenced by drug treatment. It is therefore difficult to study endocrine mechanisms in heart failure as most patients are already on treatment by the time they reach hospital. 2. We studied nine hospital in-patients before and after treatment of acute New York Heart Association class IV heart failure… CONTINUE READING
