Heart Failure

Resource Properties

Abstract:

This two-page handout educates people about heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, a condition in which the heart muscle is weakened and can't pump blood strongly enough to meet the body's needs. It clarifies that this does not mean the heart has stopped working or is about to stop; rather, the heart is not able to pump blood the way it should. It identifies causes of heart failure, and lists things people can do to take care of themselves. The document identifies those symptoms for which a doctor should be called immediately, clarifying those for which to call 911.
