Banner Desert provides many treatment options for patients with congestive heart failure. Our goal is to ease your heart's workload, prevent further damage, and, if possible, to improve your heart's function.
Your heart failure treatment will depend on several factors, including the cause and severity of your condition and your overall health. Your treatment will likely include:
- Open or bypass coronary arteries
- Repair or replace heart structures
- Implant cardiac devices such as pacemakers
- Drug-eluting coronary stent placement
- Valve repair and replacement
Some heart-failure medications help you live longer by improving
the way your heart pumps. Others relieve symptoms and help keep
you out of the hospital.
It's important for heart-failure patients to take charge of your health through better lifestyle choices, such as lowering salt intake, staying active and quitting smoking. Banner Health has experts who can help you set goals and stay on track.
Banner Desert Medical Center, in conjunction with Cardon Children’s Medical Center, is the first Banner facility to offer services for congenital heart defect patients throughout the lifespan.
