If you are experiencing any of the conditions listed below, DO NOT hesitate to contact a heart failure doctor.
- Worsening quality of life due to heart failure (difficulty sleeping or walking, inability to carry out your daily activities)
- Hospital admission for heart failure
- Increasing doses of heart failure medications
- Any sign of other organ failure (liver, kidney or lungs)
Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart cannot pump enough oxygenated blood to meet the needs of the body's other organs. The heart keeps pumping, but not as efficiently as a healthy heart. Usually, the heart's diminished capacity to pump reflects a progressive, underlying condition.
