Beta blockers and mortality after a heart attack

Beta blockers after an acute myocardial infarction appear to reduce 30 day mortality. Discontinuation of beta blockers at one year in patients without heart failure or left ventricular dysfunction appears safe. BMJ. 2016 Sep 20;354:i4801

Comment: In patients without heart failure or left ventricular dysfunction, the early use of beta blockers appears to decrease mortality, but prolonged use after 1 year appears unlikely to improve long-term survival.


  1. I may suggest Great Britain meds if u demands a fast and protected assist with authentic skilled employees. Dr. Bruce D. Schirmer and cozy and friendly taking care of e-emails aided. I am going to use United Kingdom meds yet again for certain. Comfortable consideration /
