Heart failure prognosis
The likely course of heart failure is that this long term condition will progressively get worse over time. Unfortunately it can also impact on the physical quality of life of patients and is often the cause of death in patients with heart failure.
The challenge for doctors and indeed patients is that prognosis between patients is difficult to predict because many people can be managed and stabilized for several years whereas others can have rapid and sudden decline in health which may result in sudden death.
