Justin Ezekowitz, MBBCh, MSc, Professor Department of Medicine Division of Cardiology, co-director of the Canadian VIGOUR Centre at the University of Alberta. In this video, he speaks about SODIUM-HF: Study of Dietary Intervention Under 100 MMOL in Heart Failure (SODIUM-HF).


Brief Synopsis:


SODIUM-HF is a multicenter clinical trial in ambulatory patients with chronic heart failure to assess the efficacy of a reduced sodium diet on a composite clinical outcome comprised of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular hospitalizations, and cardiovascular emergency department visits. The study's premise is that patients who follow a low-sodium diet will have fewer clinical events (fewer hospital readmissions or emergency department visits, longer survival) than those who were randomly assigned to Usual Care.
