Abstract

Deaths resulting from heart failure are just as frequent, if not more frequent, than deaths resulting from certain types of cancer. Patients suffering from end stageheartfailure tend to go directly to the emergency room. ER Multidisciplinary medical teams (doctors, nurses, psychologists) should be adequately trained to provide comfort, symptom management, and spiritual well-being for the patients and their families. This article presents a case concerning an 87-year-old man suffering from cardiac arrest and congestive heart failure due to ischemic cardiomyopathy.
