Fantastic video on Heart Failure

Post by Ozchrissy » February 28th, 2017, 7:22 pm

I just stumbled upon this video, it really explains Heart Failure and also the reason why we need ICD's when we have it. Really worth the time to watch, as it is easy to understand and covers all the types of issues that cause heart failure.

Great video - easy to understand explanations for many of the things we experience. I find that having an understanding of what is happening greatly relieves my anxiety over it. Most doctors don't have - or take - the time to explain things in an understandable way; videos like this really help fill in the gap. Thanks for posting!
