Heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization for people over 65. Heart failure affects nearly 6 million people in the United States. People with heart failure have a heart that is either stiff and not able to adequately fill with blood or it doesn’t squeeze efficiently.
Chest pain is sharp, dull, or burning discomfort in the chest.
