Congestive Heart Failure Clinic
Today, nearly five million Americans live with congestive heart failure, a condition in which the heart muscle, weakened by heart disease, is not able to pump as much blood as the body needs.
As the heart’s pumping action lessens, organs may not get the oxygen and nutrients they need to function properly. Fluid may back up in the lungs, liver, or legs which can cause shortness of breath, leg swelling (called edema), and other problems.
The Congestive Heart Failure Clinic at Jefferson Regional can help you manage this condition at home, to improve your health and quality of life, and prevent repeated admissions to the hospital.
Our multidisciplinary approach to your care by a team of registered nurses, dieticians, behavioral health specialists, and exercise physiologists, provides individualized patient and family education and support, including:
Fluid and Weight Management
Behavioral Health Counseling
