  • Methods
  • Methods and Results In the Department of Veterans Affairs cooperative study of amiodarone in congestive heart failure, 674 patients with New York Heart Association class II through IV symptoms and ejection fractions of ≤40% were treated with amiodarone or placebo for a median of 45 months in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled protocol.

  • reduction
  • Patients receiving low-intensity ICBT showed a significant reduction in distress, even when they had low levels of distress initially. (diva-portal.org)
  • Of note is the trend toward a reduction in the combined end point of hospitalizations and cardiac deaths (relative risk, 0.82 [CI, 0.65 to 1. P =.08), which was significant in patients with nonischemic etiology (relative risk, 0.56 [CI, 0.36 to 0. P =.01) and absent in the ischemic group (relative risk, 0.95). (ahajournals.org)
  • The substantial reduction in the combined end point of cardiac death plus hospitalizations for heart failure in the nonischemic group suggests possible benefit in these patients. (ahajournals.org)
