The management of heart failure in children is becoming a specialized discipline within pediatric cardiology. Unlike the treatment of heart failure in adults, for which an extensive body of literature supports current treatment regimens, management of heart failure in children is largely guided by extrapolation from adult studies and expert opinion. This review focuses on the current state-of-the-art with respect to the outpatient management of heart failure in children.
