According to the CDC, more than 6.5 million Americans have heart failure, and it is a contributing factor in 1 in 8 deaths. Heart failure is a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen.
Caught in its earliest stages, it can be reversed or slowed through lifestyle modification and medication. Cardiologist Kulpreet Barn, MD, outlines the early symptoms, risk factors, and how it is diagnosed and treated.
By participating in this quiz, or screening or health assessment, I recognize and accept all risks associated with it. I understand that the program will only screen for certain risk factors and does not constitute a complete physical exam. For the diagnosis of a medical problem, I must see a physician for a complete medical exam. I release Deborah Heart and Lung Center and any other organization(s) involved in this screening, and their employees and agents, from all liabilities, medical claims or expenses which may arise from my participation. Thank you for investing in your health by participating today.
