What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure is a condition in which the heart muscle is either weak or stiff, and gradually loses its ability to pump enough blood to supply the body’s needs. Symptoms include shortness of breath, fatigue, activity intolerance, and fluid retention.

Heart failure affects nearly 6 million Americans and is the only major cardiovascular disease on the rise. While there is currently no known cure for heart failure, it can be well managed with appropriate lifestyle changes, medications, and implantable devices.

Classes will be held in Classroom 1, which is located in the Doty Family Education Center (Building 6) on Intermountain Medical Center's campus.
