What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure occurs when the heart muscle cannot pump enough blood to meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen. It is a complex, long-term disease which can be affected by other health conditions or worsen over time.

In addition to a full range of routine and complex heart conditions, diagnoses typically treated in our program include:

  • Myocardial infarction (heart attack)
  • Coronary stent placement or balloon angioplasty
  • Coronary artery bypass surgery
  • Heart valve replacement or repair
  • Heart failure
  • Heart transplant
  • Angina

Each patient's condition is unique and requires a reliable team that can tailor a personalized plan of care to match each individual patient's specific needs.

Queen's Advanced Heart Failure Clinic collaborates with other clinical specialists throughout The Queen's Health Systems such as internal medicine, cardiac rehabilitation, home health, social work, palliative care and nutrition services, to ensure our patients' needs are met effectively and efficiently.
