Heart Failure statistics according to the CDC:

  • About 5.1 million people in the United States have heart failure.
  • One in 9 deaths in 2009 included heart failure as a contributing cause.
  • About half of people who develop heart failure die within 5 years of diagnosis.

Fortunately, congestive heart failure can be well managed when patients have access to a comprehensive program of medical treatment, education, and rehabilitation. The Carson Tahoe Cardiology’s CHF Clinic is designed to meet the challenge of caring for this growing population of heart failure patients. This comprehensive program focuses on improving patient quality of life through medical treatment, vital education, and support services.
