Heart failure is a condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. Heart failure contributes to about 300,000 U.S. deaths each year.
Toward our goal of providing the best possible care for heart failure patients, we follow an established heart failure treatment protocol that has been shown to improve patient outcomes. Learn more about heart failure treatment at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.
