About Heart Failure

Heart failure is a chronic and progressive condition in which the heart cannot efficiently pump blood to meet the body's oxygen demands. The American Heart Association estimates that about 6 million Americans are living with heart failure, with 550,000 new cases diagnosed annually. Heart failure accounts directly for 55,000 deaths and indirectly for an additional 230,000 deaths in the United States each year. Heart failure is the underlying reason for approximately 12 to 15 million annual visits to physicians and 6.5 million annual hospital days.
