Heart Failure

Heart failure is a condition in which the heart's ability to pump blood is weaker than normal. When this happens, blood cannot circulate around the body adequately. Eventually, heart failure leads to the failure of other vital organs due to poor blood flow to those organs. 

Heart failure patients at Northwestern Medicine are treated using a team approach to healthcare. Doctors diagnose and treat heart failure with a wide variety of therapies. These therapies range from carefully chosen medications to heart surgeries, including, when necessary, heart transplantation. Heart transplantation is offered to patients who have worsening heart failure that can no longer be managed with medication or other therapies.

Below is a list of our heart failure quality measures.
