First of all, “Heart Failure” doesn’t mean that your heart has stopped all of a sudden and you are about to die. It means that the heart muscle became so weak that it has trouble pumping blood strongly enough to nourish your body. This leads to developing a serious health condition that requires medical care.
Every year, about 1M hospitalizations have a primary diagnosis of Heart Failure. One out of every 5 people will develop Heart Failure over the course of their lifetime.
Since Heart Failure is such a huge health risk, it’s vital for everyone who has a heart to know basic information about the disease, as well as its diagnosis and treatment.
We put together some critical facts and recommendations that we believe, will be helpful for those who have Heart Failure condition, or are caring for someone who does.Heart-Failure-4
