Congestive heart failure (CHF) is an incurable disease in which the heart fails to pump enough blood to properly supply the body with oxygen and nutrients. In most developed countries, one senior out of every 15 on average suffers from CHF. Moreover, CHF is the most common reason seniors have to visit the hospital. The main symptom of the disease is the inability to be physically active. CHF patients have to take various medications, they are supposed to monitor their weight, they are advised to exercise, they need to watch what they eat and drink, and they have to make other changes to their lifestyle. This makes CHF management very difficult. This brochure explains how the HeartMan personal health system for management of congestive heart failure works and how cant it help patients and caregivers.
