Congestive heart failure (CHF) affects almost five million people in the United States, according to the American Heart Association. Patients with CHF have weak blood vessels that cannot pump blood effectively, often due to a heart attack or high blood pressure. CHF is a serious disease for which there is no cure; however, it can be successfully managed through LIFT Disease Management, in partnership with your primary care provider or cardiologist.
CHF pateints attend weekly educational classes that cover a variety of subjects, including:
