Management of the Patient with Stable Ischemic Heart Disease and Preserved Left Ventricular Systolic Function
After discussing the potential benefits and the small risk of adverse effects, and considering his experience with the ACEI, you decide to start him on the ARB and schedule him a followup visit. After reviewing the consumer summary guide again with him, you remind him of the benefits and potential harms of taking an ARB. Once he is comfortable with this decision, you remind him to refer to the guide he has when he has questions regarding his treatment. In his next regularly scheduled visit, you will review his medications and ask him about any symptoms and any further questions he may have.
