Clinical Trial Summary

Holding ACEI/ARBs during initial 72 hours of admission with acute decompensated heart failure may help preserve renal function with a lesser decline in GFR. This treatment modification will also allow the option of aggressive diuresis in volume overloaded CHF patients which should result in a lesser decline of AKI, length of stay, readmission rates, and cost associated with CHF treatment.


Clinical Trial Description

The investigators hypothesize that worsening renal function can be mitigated by withholding ACEI/ARB during the initial phase of in-patient treatment with aggressive diuresis. This hypothesis will be tested by randomly allocating 360 admitted patients with ADHF on two treatment paths: 1) no ACEI/ARB administered for initial 72 hours of treatment during aggressive diuresis versus 2) full dose ACEI/ARB administered concurrently with aggressive diuresis in naïve patients/home dose, who are already on such therapy. The study team hopes to find that holding ACEI/ARBs during the initial 72 hours of admission with acute decompensated systolic heart failure will help preserve renal function, as demonstrated by a lesser decline in GFR. In addition, this treatment would allow the option of aggressive diuresis in volume overloaded CHF patients, resulting in a lesser decline of AKI, length of stay, readmission rates, and costs associated with CHF treatment. By understanding the complex interaction between holding ACEIs/ARBs and continued aggressive diuresis, the investigators intend to develop optimal dosing strategies for acute, decompensated CHF patients, further minimizing adverse events such as electrolyte issues and declining GFR/AKI. ;
