Introduction

Heart failure is not only common but--somewhat unique among cardiac conditions--its prevalence is increasing as the population ages and as modern cardiac care allows people with heart disease to survive longer. (I sometimes tell nurses and pharmacists that the prevalence of heart failure adds to their job security.) Despite tremendous advances in therapy, heart failure nonetheless brings with it a heavy burden of both mortality and morbidity. Half of affected patients die within five years after diagnosis, and severe symptoms and hospitalization are frequent.
