Take Control of your Heart Failure

Heart failure affects nearly 5 million people in the United States and is one of the most frequent reasons for hospitalization. Although it can lead to serious disability, or even death in some patients, it is possible to control your heart failure and avoid many of its complications. Ochsner is here to help.

Thanks to advances in medicine and technology, we can help you control heart failure, as long as you’re willing to take part in your own care. Take your medications, adopt a healthier lifestyle, weigh yourself daily, and monitor your diet (particularly sodium), and you’ll be on the right track to managing your health.

Information included on these webpages can help you learn what it means to have heart failure and what you can do to take control.

If you develop any symptoms that indicate your heart failure is worsening, we ask that you contact us at 504-475-4016, or contact your physician directly.
