When your heart can't pump enough blood to meet your body's needs, the condition is called heart failure (HF) — though it doesn’t mean that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working.

You may experience shortness of breath, fluid build-up in in your feet and legs and general tiredness. It’s a complicated disease, but you will feel better and experience fewer complications if you take control and manage your symptoms. NorthBay’s Heart Health Clinic for heart failure can help.

Close Monitoring Using Digital Technology

The NorthBay Heart and Vascular Center in partnership with Kencor, a medical monitoring company, has developed a monitoring tool that uses digital technology to track and transmit key information, such as weight, blood pressure and heart rate, to specially trained nurses who will help patients manage their condition before they notice symptoms. Participants must meet specific medical criteria. There is no charge for this program. For more information call or email Dana.Gill@NorthBay.org.

CardioMEMS For Advanced Heart Failure

Patients with certain types of more advanced heart failure often benefit from regular monitoring of the blood pressure in the pulmonary artery, a large blood vessel that runs between the heart and the lungs. A small monitoring device implanted in the pulmonary artery, sends pressure readings to the professional staff at the Heart and Vascular Center. Small changes in pressure can indicate a worsening condition long before a patient notices symptoms; identifying potential problems quickly, allows your cardiologist to adjust your treatment right away. If you struggle with heart failure, ask your NorthBay cardiologist about CardioMEMs.

Heart Health Academy

It’s a group of patients living with heart failure who get together each month to learn about the medication and lifestyle choices that make a difference and share their stories with others who are coping with the challenges of heart failure. Led by cardiac nurse, Dana Gill R.N., attendance is open to everyone in the community. Meetings are held every Wednesday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m at NorthBay Medical Center and on the first and second Thursdays at 9 a.m. at the VacaValley Wellness Center in Vacaville. For more information call (707) 646-5072 or email Dana.Gill@NorthBay.org.
