  • “… digoxin is even more pertinent in the context of the increasing prevalence of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction.”
    ~ Michael White, MD

  • "These are guidelines created to guide people in decision making, but there is latitude based on patients’ underlying medical conditions, underlying psychiatric conditions, and other issues that may come into play, and all of these things need to be considered."
    ~ John D. Fisher, MD

  • "I don’t believe that a good guideline should be hidebound by unduly restrictive ‘evidence rules’ that ignore all but a tiny fraction of the available scientific information. A good guideline must synthesize complex data in a clear and concise way and must address the kinds of questions that real doctors need answered every day."

    Joseph L. Izzo, Jr., MD

  • "We now know that sleep and the sleep/wake cycle are intertwined with most of our bodily systems, so sleep problems can lead to pathologies in many different physiological systems, possibly causing acute and chronic effects."

    David Neubauer

  • "Diastolic function might also help you identify further people who have systolic impairment by providing additional information regarding the loading condition of the patient, ie, the LV [left ventricular] filling pressure. It also provides valuable prognostic information beyond EF [ejection fraction]."
