Abstract
Heart failure affects over 23 million people worldwide, with 670,000 new cases diagnosed yearly in the USA alone. Heart failure accounts for over 6.5 million US hospital days per year, 1 million of which are readmissions. Readmissions cost over $17 billion dollars yearly and the burden in morbidity, diminished productivity, disability, and quality of life continues to rise. Pacific Islanders, African-Americans, and Hispanics are among those most at risk, with women affected more often than men. Each year, more women than men die from cardiovascular disease and from all cancers combined. However, treatment guidelines for women and heart disease were not published until 2004. Additionally, the lack of adherence to quality indicators and heart failure treatment guidelines by clinicians has been identified as a major contributor to heart failure readmission rates. As clinicians, it is critical to educate both ourselves and our patients regarding recognition and management of cardiovascular risk for women, heart failure in particular. Issues regarding treatment delays, symptom presentation, and treatment responses specific to women are presented using a case study approach. The latest ACC/AHA guidelines are reviewed and recommendations offered.
