In this episode of the Rx Bricks Podcast, we explore one of the cornerstones of the cardiovascular collection: Heart Failure.
Here are the learning objectives we’ll be covering:
1. Define heart failure.
2. Describe the four functional classes of heart failure.
3. List and briefly describe the most common diseases causing heart failure, identifying ischemic cardiomyopathy as the most common in the United States.
4. Describe the four stages of left heart failure using the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association classification.
5. Describe the clinical presentation of heart failure using the cold/warm and wet/dry paradigm.
