Sleeping pills increase CV events in heart failure patients by 8-fold


-Sleeping pills increase CV events in heart failure patients by 8-fold
– Of the 47 HFpEF patients, 15 reached the study endpoint during the 180 day follow up period. The only differences between patients who had events and those who did not were prescription of sleeping pills (benzodiazepine hypnotics), blood sodium levels at admission and blood haemoglobin levels at discharge
* The study was presented today at the Heart Failure Congress 2014, held 17-20 May in Athens, Greece
