Mortality in large placebo-controlled trials of oral inotropes indicates short-term hemodynamic beneﬁt, but all have been associated with increased mortality. Also, trials of chronic inotropic therapy demonstrate conﬂicting results in regard to subsequent quality of life56. Levosimendan, available in Australia with restricted prescribing, is an inotrope described as a calcium sensitiser; it possesses theoretical advantages over the traditional inotropes59. It has been shown to be efﬁcacious in a number of studies in acute heart failure60,61,62.
This research is most needed for a better understanding of the mechanisms as well as for an improvement in prevention and treatment of this syndrome. References 1.

It has been shown to be efﬁcacious in a number of studies in acute heart failure60,61,62. However, two large recently presented studies, REVIVE and SURVIVE, while conﬁrming clinical beneﬁts, did not demonstrate a survival advantage over placebo or dobutamine63. One important advantage of levosimendan is the overcoming of therapeutic confusion that occurs when using catecholamines, where an intravenous beta-agonist is prescribed for a patient established on oral beta-blockers.
