Heart Failure Care

Heart failure expertise

Heart failure, also known as congestive heart failure (CHF), occurs when the heart can no longer pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. Different from a heart attack, heart failure is a chronic, long-term condition that prevents the heart from functioning effectively.  

East Tennessee Heart Consultants cardiac specialists utilize advanced diagnostic technology to determine the cause and extent of heart failure. Doctors and nurses who specialize in heart failure provide a comprehensive management program that offers the latest treatment options, including:

  • Medical management – Medications are used to lower blood pressure, eliminate excess water, prevent clotting, slow heart rate or alter hormones that affect the heart. East Tennessee Heart Consultants cardiologists can develop a program that combines medication and lifestyle changes to effectively manage heart failure. 
  • Risk factor management – Lifestyle changes such as losing weight and eating more healthfully, controlling blood pressure, abstaining from alcohol and smoking, and getting enough rest can help improve heart health and prevent further damage. East Tennessee Heart Consultants offers a complimentary Congestive Heart Failure Telemanagement program to heart failure patients. Participants learn how to recognize early warning signs, understand medications and maintain a healthy weight and diet. 
  • Minimally invasive cardiac catheterization techniques – Outpatient procedures such as angioplasty and stent placement are used to open blocked arteries. 
  • Surgery – Experienced cardiac surgeons utilize advanced technology to deliver state-of-the-art heart failure treatment, including implantable devices such as pacemakers and defibrillators.
