Quick Overview
Heart failure is emerging as a pandemic globally and the burden is going to affect the low-middle income countries in a big way. It is a disease with high mortality and morbidity. Guideline-directed therapy has shown to benefit the patients by reducing mortality, but the intake of such therapy is inadequate in many countries including India. In the last few years, we have seen emergence of newer therapeutic avenues in heart failure (HF) management, which include pharmacological therapy and devices. In this context, the need for a book to guide all those caring heart failure patients was felt and the national leaders and experts in India have joined together to come out with this manual. The book starts with epidemiology, going through diagnostics and then therapeutics and finally discussing management issues of specific conditions. It covers all the management issues in a simple manner, supported with tables and algorithms wherever possible.
