If you have
heart failure, it is important that you do as much as
possible to avoid catching colds, the flu, and other respiratory infections.
Although these may be relatively minor illnesses in healthy people, they are
more dangerous if you have heart failure, and you are at higher risk for dangerous complications, such as pneumonia.
