Description

Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) 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 loss in the heart's pumping action is a symptom of an underlying heart problem. Heart failure affects nearly 5 million US adults.
It is on the rise with an estimated 400, 000 to 700, 000 new cases each year. The Indiana University Health Advanced Heart Care Center works to assess patients for worsening congestive heart failure and educate them as to how to best care for themselves. Inpatients diagnosed with CHF are visited during their stay by a CHF nurse to provide education for both the patient and family.
Once patients are released, the CHF staff follows up by phone and meets with the patient on a regular basis at the IU Health Advanced Heart Care Center to provide health maintenance and screen for any signs of worsening CHF.
