heart failure clinic

heart failure clinic

A clinic (a “clinical session” in American English) in the UK which is run by an advanced nurse clinician working independently or under a named consultant cardiologist, which focuses on clinical issues affecting heart failure patients, and provides care that complements that received by the doctor alone. The success of such clinics depends on the severity and progression of cardiovascular impairment: once left ventricular failure develops, fluid titration requires constant fine-tuning; whereas small changes in diet and correct dosing of medications makes heart failure more manageable.
