1 Heart Failure pharmacist care plan By: Dalya Abu Al-Sindyan Lina Darwish Msllam
2 Chief ComplaintI’ve been more short of breath lately, I can’t seem to walk as far as I used to, either my feet are growing or my shoes are shrinking.
3 History Of Present Illness (HPI) Rosemary is a sixty eight years old African-American female, she report that her shortness of breath has been gradually increasing over the past four days and it is particularly worse when she is lying in bed at night and she also reports exertional duspnea that is usual for her and increased swilling in her lower extremities.

8 ROS Seven kg weight gain over the past week. Worsening shortness of breath.Orthopnea chronic, dry hacking cough.
9 Physical Examination GEN: VS: Skin: HEENT: Nick: Lungs: African-American female in moderate respiratory distress.VS:BP 134/76 (Sitting 138/80), HR 65, RR 24, T 37 ºC, O2 sat 90% RA, WT 79 kg.Skin:Color pale and diaphoretic.HEENT:PERRLA lips mildly cyanotic; dentures.Nick:JVD at 30º (7 cm).Lungs:Crackles bilaterally.Echocardiogram:LVH reduced global left ventricular systolic function, EF 20%Heart:Irregularly Irregularl (s3); displaced PMI.APD:Soft, myldlu tender, nondistended, (+) HJR.GENIT/RECT:Guaiac (-).MS/EXT:3+ pitting pedal edema bilaterally.NEURO:A & O x 3, CNs intact.

11 Signs & SymptomsWhat signs symptoms & other information indicate the presence and type of heart failure in this patient?
12 Signs Shortness of breath for the last 4 days . Increased swelling in lower extremities.Exertional dyspnea.Note:These are symptoms of Left sided-HF & listed as stage ii /iii HF (NYHA functional classification) or stage C (ACC/AHA(38)
14 Physical Examination Labs: BNP greater than 100 pg/mL (776pg/ml). ECG Atrial fibrillation ,and LV hypertrophy.Nick: JVD at 30 is a result of right side HFLungs bilateral crackles result from CHF.
15 Heart Failure Classification What is the classification of heart failure in this patient ?stage ii /iii systolic HF (NYHA functional classification) or stage C (ACC/AHA(38))Stage I of diastolic HF.She has acute exacerbation of heart failure with left systolic dysfunction.
16 Patient Problems Causes Could any of this patient problems have been caused by drug therapy ?Pioglitazone which is 1ST generation sulfonurea tend to exacerbate heart failure (BB C.I) in symptomatic patients & cause edema , weight gain,also glimperide increase CV mortality.Intake of carvediolol with b2 agonist causes antagonism and worsening of COPD..
17 Goals For Pharmacologic Management Of HF What are the goals for pharmacologic management of HF in this patient?Slowing progression of the disease, improving quality of life, and prolonging survival reducing long-term risk for hospitalizationsAlleviating fluid retention, minimizing disability.Relief symptoms of dyspnea & orthopnea .Decrease edema & swelling.Manage acute exacerbation of her HF.
18 Diuretic TherapyWhat diuretic therapy should be recommended for this patient initially for acute tx of HF exacerbation?Use the same diuretic she takes furosemide as I.V.: mg/dose, may be repeated in 1-2 hours as needed and increased by 20 mg/dose with each succeeding dose up to 1000 mg/day; usual dosing interval: 6-12 hours [ACC/AHA guidelines ]
19 PharmacotherapyHow should this patient pharmacotherapy be adjusted for chronic management of her systolic heart failure ?Change B blocker to metoprolol succinate to prevent interaction with b2 agonistTitrate furosemide oral dose to 80 mg( max 600)Warfarin dosage should be based on INR (2-3)or prothrombin levelIncrease the dose of glimperide after stopping pioglitazone
20 Non Pharmacologic Therapy What non pharmacologic therapy should be recommended for this patient with respect to her HF?Cha dietary modifications such as sodium and fluid restriction & low cholesterol diet.Risk factor reduction including stopping alcohol consumption, timely immunizations, and supervised regular physical activity.Stop alcohol intake as it causes heart poisoning: bed rest & o2 therapy to enhance acute phase.
21 Drug PlanWhat drugs, doses ,schedules & duration of action are best suited for the management of this patient ?DrugInitial Daily Dose(s)Maximum Dose(s)scadualsDuration of actionMetoprolol succinateextended release12.5 to 25 mg once200 mg once24 hrFurosemide20 to 40 mg once or twice600 mg6 to 8 hvalsartan40 mg twice daily80 to 160 mg once daily
22 Drug Plan Continue on Warfarin 2.5 mg PO 1ce/day. What non pharmacologic therapy should be recommended for this patient with respect to her HF?Continue on Warfarin 2.5 mg PO 1ce/day.Continue on aspirin 81 mg po once daily.HTN management associated with heart faliure :Continue on valsartan 160 mg po BID.Continue on furosemide 40 mg po BID.Atrial fibrillation:Managed by warfarin 2.5 mg & carvedilol 3.125mg (replaced with metoprolol succinate)Dyslipidemia:Continue on atorvastatin 40 mg po 1ce daily.
23 Drug Plan DM Type ii management: Use insulin glargine 36 U subQ dailyUse insulin lispro 12 U subQ TID with meals.COPD management :Continue on albuterol MDI 2 inhalation q 4-6 hrContinue on tiotropium DPI 18 mcg, 1/dayContinue on fluticasone /salmetrol DPI 250 mcg/50 mcg, 1 inhalation BID.Hypokalemia :Continue on pottasium supplements with monitoring specially with furosemide IV.
24 Alternative PlanAdd direct vasodilator as 1st line therapy for her HF b/c it has advantage in African American over ACE-I & ARB’s which c/I in this case due to presence allergy cough edema hyperkalemia & renal impairment : use Isosorbide Dinitrate and hydralazine in comb : BiDilآ®No need to add digoxin for Afib as it’s managed.Can’tAdd spirlonlactone as it’s adviced for stage iii HF because crcl
25 Clinical & Laboratory Parameters What clinical & laboratory parameters are needed to evaluate the therapy for achievement of the desired therapeutic outcome and to detect and prevent adverse events?Initially monitor patient for rapid relief of symptoms related to the chief complaint of orthopnea, dyspnea , oxygenation & fatique.Monitor for adequate perfusion of vital signs:asses mental status , Cr Cl , liver function test and a stable HR btw HR/min,BP.Monitor kidney& liver function.monitor blood glucoseFluid intake – body weight (daily)-
26 Monitor Adverse Effect Of Drugs What clinical & laboratory parameters are needed to evaluate the therapy for achievement of the desired therapeutic outcome and to detect and prevent adverse events?Metoprolol succinate:BP, HR baseline and after Carvedilol mg twice 25 mg twice each dose titration, ECGFurosemide :monitor electrolyte ,hyperuricemia , nephrotoxicity & autotoxicity.Valsartan :Monitor potassium and serum creatinine
27 information should be provided What information should be provided to the patient about medication used to treat her HF ?Furosemide taking on empty stomachDigoxin: do not discontinue without consulting prescriber.Grapefruit juice can increase the blood levels of Atorvastatin. This can increase the risk of side effects such as liver damage
28 Information Should Be Provided What information should be provided to the patient about medication used to treat her HF ?Furosemide taking on empty stomachDigoxin: do not discontinue without consulting prescriber.Grapefruit juice can increase the blood levels of Atorvastatin. This can increase the risk of side effects such as liver damageTake Metoprolol at the same time each day, preferably with or immediately following mealsAvoid taking potassium rich food.Glimepiride should be administered with breakfast or the first main meal.
