Heart Failure

Heart failure, sometimes called congestive heart failure, is a chronic (long-term) condition caused by the inability of the heart to pump as much blood as the body needs. Heart failure becomes more common with age and causes symptoms such as shortness of breath and a build-up of fluid in the feet and legs. Heart failure is one of the most common reasons for hospitalization. A healthy lifestyle and proper medications can reduce the effects of heart failure and the need for future hospitalization. These indicators examine how well we manage the care of patients hospitalized for heart failure. Norton Healthcare performance represents the performance of all the hospitals combined.
