Guide About Congestive Heart Failure Study

Heart failure or congestive heart failure. It is a condition where the heart is unable to pump blood effectively, leading to inadequate circulation and oxygen delivery to the body’s tissues. Congestive heart failure often occurs due to underlying conditions like coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, or previous heart damage.

Hightower conducted studies to evaluate the safety and efficacy of novel drugs in individuals who experienced cardiovascular events. We also investigated the effectiveness of a new device compared to traditional devices in improving long-term response preventing or reducing congestive heart failure.
