Finding your rhythm

Heart failure has a dramatic impact on people’s lives. There is a strong chance you will find yourself in a hospital and even with quick action have a one in three chance of ending up dying within a year of diagnosis.The number of people suffering heart failure is on the rise as we are living longer. It will hit one in five adults over 40 years of age during their lifetime – around 6.5 million people in Europe. This is both a severe personal tragedy for those with failing hearts and for their families.

Between 1% and 2% of health budgets are spent on heart failure, more than half of which is gobbled up by the cost of hospitalisation. Heart failure is everyone’s problem.

Thankfully, there are solutions.
