Key PointsQuestionDoes an intervention aimed at improving guideline adherence for the management of acute heart failure, including intensive intravenous nitrate therapy and management of precipitating factors, improve hospital discharge and survival at 30 days? FindingsIn this stepped-wedge cluster randomized trial that included 503 patients 75 years and older who presented to the emergency department with acute heart failure, implementation of an early and comprehensive care bundle compared with usual care improved guideline adherence, but had no significant effect on number of days alive and out of hospital at 30 days (median of 19 d in both groups). MeaningsThis emergency department care bundle did not improve 30-day outcomes among older patients with acute heart failure.
