Heart Failure

Heart failure (HF) is a clinical syndrome with an increasing prevalence and a high morbidity and mortality rate. It is classified by the location (right or left side) and degree of functional impairment, either with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF), midrange EF (HFmrEF), or with reduced EF (HFrEF). On presentation, patients may have new onset or acute HF, or they may have acutely decompensated congestive heart failure (ADCHF).
