  Questions about advanced heart failure

Do you or a loved one have advanced heart failure? You may have a lot of questions.

Heart failure is common. It's also a serious disease that can lead to death without treatment.1 Early on, heart failure can be managed with medicine and healthy choices. But as heart failure gets worse and the heart becomes weaker, medicine may be less effective. It’s normal to feel scared, worried, or stressed. But there are treatment options that can keep your heart beating like it should.
