Tricky : Heart failure in the setting of low blood pressure is challenging. Diuretics like Lasix (furosemide) can be used but support of the cardiac output is essential. Acute care is usually in the ICU with IV meds. Chronic heart failure managed as an outpatient with diuretics, ace inhibitors, and other cardiac meds requires close follow-up of blood pressure, electrolytes, and kidney function.
