Abstract:

"According to the American Heart Association, 2 to 3 million people suffer from heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure or dropsy, and another 500,000 cases arise each year. Unlike other forms of heart disease, which have declined recently, heart failure cases continue to increase at a significant rate. What then is this disease called heart failure?" "Success with Heart Failure: Help and Hope for Those with Congestive Heart Failure is a remarkable guide for answering this and other questions, in particular: how do you "get" heart failure and can you somehow prevent it? who are the groups at risk? how can you find out what kind of heart failure you have? what can be done to ensure efficient and cost-effective diagnosis and treatment? Marc A. Silver, M.D., a leading clinical expert on heart failure, and a cardiologist whose entire career is dedicated to caring for patients with heart failure, succinctly dispels the misconception that heart failure is an automatic death sentence." "This extraordinary book is written as a primer for patients, families, and professionals alike - to serve as a resource to better understand one of this country's major healthcare problems - and covers such crucial topics as: the similarities and differences between heart failure and a heart attack; the current mortality statistics for heart failure and how receiving proper medical attention can alter those numbers; the decision to use a family doctor or cardiologist to treat a patient's heart condition; the roles of attitude and optimism in treatment and outcome; the effectiveness of routine, experimental, and alternative treatments; the unique problems affecting special groups (for example, a young person, a pregnant woman, an AIDS patient); and the role of heart transplantation." "In addition, there is a special section on drugs commonly used to treat heart failure, along with cautions on dosage, the potential side-effects of drug interactions, and extremely useful guides for creating a diet based on low salt intake." "Combining the author's direct approach and the fascinating remarks from a set of case histories, Success with Heart Failure transforms the complicated topic of heart failure into a poignant, easy-to-read book that gives help, hope, and information to the millions of patients who suffer with heart failure, their families, and friends. The book will provide keen insight for hospital administrators, social workers, nurses, physicians, public health officials, clinical psychologists, and pharmacologists." --Book Jacket.
