About Heart Failure

Over 5 million Americans suffer from heart failure, a condition in which the heart becomes weakened and cannot pump blood efficiently. Heart failure is caused by coronary artery disease, past myocardial infarctions, cardiomyopathy and other underlying cardiovascular disorders, and it is characterized by shortness of breath, functional impairment, and edema. In the U.S., heart failure results in over 1 million hospitalizations annually and is responsible for over $33 billion in direct and indirect costs to the U.S. healthcare system each year.
