Randolph Hospital to Host Seminar
The American Heart Association defines heart failure as a condition in which the heart is not pumping as well as it should.
On Monday, Sept. 27, cardiologist Malkiat Dhatt, M.D., of Carolina Cardiology Associates, will be discussing the risk factors, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of congestive heart failure during his “Heart Failure Epidemic” seminar at Randolph Hospital.
Participants will develop a better understanding of how heart failure contributes to heart disease, which is the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“Heart failure is a growing epidemic with 5 million Americans suffering from it, and 550,000 new cases every year,” said Dhatt. “An estimated 50 percent of patients with heart failure will die within five years of diagnosis. As the staggering number of people battling heart disease continues to increase, the most prudent strategy to combat this epidemic is prevention.”
The seminar will be held at Randolph Hospital.
