Podcast: The Truth About Heart Failure

Dr. Paul Mather headshotHearing the word "failure" associated with your heart can be scary. However, heart failure does not mean that your heart has stopped working. Instead, this chronic and progressive condition occurs when the heart isn't pumping as efficiently as it should, and as a result your body isn't receiving the oxygen it needs.

In this segment, Dr. Paul Mather explains heart failure is a chronic condition that can be managed and how the physicians at the Penn Medicine Heart Failure Program can help you get the best treatment for your condition.
