An Introduction to Heart Failure gives you a glimpse into a very serious health issue in the United States. As stated at the beginning 5.7 million people in the United States suffer from heart failure. Let us get committed now to teach family members, friends, patients, and ourselves about the risk factors and work to help decrease these numbers. I touch on a variety of points from etiology, types of heart failure, tests for heart failure, medications for heart failure, The Joint Commissions Core Measures for heart failure, and I end with a clinical pathway for heart failure. A reference section is included at the end of the book for ones personal use and that also can be used in patient care. This publication is has 3 contact hours available.
