Congestive Heart Failure

As American Heart Month comes to a close, we want to bring light to a common form of heart disease in the elderly; congestive heart failure.

If you missed our blog, we touched on causes, risk factors, symptoms, and even complications. If nothing else, please make sure you are aware of heart disease symptoms and speak with your physician regularly about any changes in your body.
