Heart Failure Clinic
Heart failure is diagnosed when the heart muscle is weakened and does not pump blood normally to all parts of the body. It does not mean the heart has stopped pumping, beating or has completely failed.
Having heart failure doesn’t mean a patient can’t lead a normal, active life. By taking control, and understanding and carefully following a treatment plan, a patient can live successfully with heart failure.
