Cardiac/Inotropic Services


Vital Care provides the high level of personalized care necessary for patients living with heart failure, awaiting transplant services, or receiving palliative care.

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough blood throughout the body. Cardiac inotropes (milrinone, dobutamine, dopamine) may be prescribed and infused in the home setting for those patients with conditions that affect cardiac health. Vital Care's team of clinicians will work with the patient, caregivers, and the physician's medical team to develop a care plan specific to each individual patient.

Your Vital Care clinical staff will be involved from the very beginning of your transition to home care. The goals of Vital Care's cardiology services are to improve the patient's quality of life and maximize comfort through symptom relief. Our pharmacy staff, under the direction of the physician, is able to work closely with the patient and caregiver.

Our clinicians will provide timely and vital information to the patient's health care team, as we understand the importance of providing ongoing clinical assessments and patient monitoring. The Vital Care team will closely monitor the patient’s status and treatment, provide patient education materials, and answer all questions regarding this therapy.
