According to the American Heart Association, heart failure occurs when the heart muscle is weakened and cannot pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen. Heart failure requires you to pay attention to changes and symptoms. If you have been diagnosed with heart failure, we encourage you to view our Heart Failure Action Plan and find out how you can better manage your condition instead of it managing you.
The Heart Failure Action Plan was created to help people with heart failure following treatment, stay alert to signs and symptoms, and take timely actions to address problems. If you have heart failure, you can complete the action plan with your healthcare provider and bring it to appointments. You can also post the action plan somewhere you can easily see it easily and use it to monitor your symptoms daily.
