If your heart fails, we can help
Heart failure can be a progressive, chronic, and deadly disease. It affects 5.7 million people in the US and it does not discriminate between men, women, or children. It is the number one reason Americans are admitted to the hospital every year.
Congestive heart failure occurs when your heart does not pump blood properly. Certain conditions can slowly stress your heart, leaving it too weak to pump efficiently. For example, coronary artery disease, which is narrowed arteries in your heart or high blood pressure. It is important to see a cardiologist to help you determine options for your particular condition.
It is equally important to evaluate your lifestyle and make some changes, such as exercising, reducing sodium in your diet, managing stress and keeping a healthy weight.
