Elevated Heart Rate is Associated With Poor Outcomes in Post-MI and HF Patients

  • In post-MI patients, elevated HR is associated with poor outcomes, such as non-fatal MI or non-fatal stroke.1
  • In CHF patients, risk of CV death or HF readmission increases by 3% with every elevated beat.2

Low-EF Patients With Elevated HR (70 bpm or Greater) Have Increased Risk for CV Death and HF Readmission3

Early Reduction of HR is Associated With Improved Outcomes

  • Early reduction of HR at 1 month (9.5-15.3 bpm) improves long-term survival rate and MI recurrence.4
