Heart Failure is a condition in which the heart too weak to pump enough blood to the body's other organs. The entire body depends on the oxygen and nutrient-rich blood delivered by the heart for proper function. Heart failure may result from narrowed arteries that supply blood to the heart itself -- coronary artery disease. A past heart attack, extreme obesity, and/or high blood pressure may also contribute to heart failure.

Percent of heart failure patients or their care givers who were given written instructions or educational materials at discharge or during the hospital stay addressing all of the following: activity level, diet, discharge medications, follow-up appointment, weight monitoring, and what to do if symptoms worsen.
