Title: Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme Inhibitor Dose Optimization and Its Associated Factors at Felege Hiwot Comprehensive Specialized Hospital, Bahir Dar, Ethiopia


Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors dose optimizations (ACEIs) are essential to boost the treatment outcome in heart failure patients (HF) with reduced ejection fraction. the main purpose of this study was to evaluate dose optimization and associated factors of ACEIs. An institutional-based retrospective study was conducted. A systematic random sampling method was carried out. Only one-third of patients received the optimum dose of ACEIs. Older age and dose of furosemide greater >40 mg were significantly associated with  suboptimal dosing of ACEIs.
