If you or someone you love has ever had a heart attack or some other kind of heart disease, are you aware these conditions increase a person's risk for heart failure? In today's podcast, recorded live during a recent seminar, cardiologist James L. Warnock, Jr., MD, provides an easy-to-understand overview of heart failure. You'll learn easily recognizable symptoms; how it is diagnosed, including the kinds of tests that physicians may perform; and how it is treated, including a discussion of medications and pacing devices. The episode also includes the seminar's question and answer session at the end. Learn how your heart's efficiency is measured by an important number called the ejection fraction. And discover why breathlessness when lying down shouldn't be ignored.
