It is reported that more is more for HFrEF patients and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE-I) and angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) therapy. In a recent meta-analysis of six randomized trials*, higher doses of ACE-I/ARBs were associated with a reduction in all-cause mortality. Of note, when the ARB trial (HEAAL) was taken out of the analysis, higher dose ACE-I alone did not reach statistical significance.
