So you have heart failure, and the type you have makes it hard for your heart to pump enough blood to the rest of your body (called heart failure with reduced ejection fraction, HFrEF, or systolic heart failure). Now what?
You probably feel scared, overwhelmed, and uncertain about the future. But heart failure can be managed. Proper treatment can help you feel better, stay out of the hospital, and live longer.
Use this action plan for managing HFrEF to write down information about your heart failure, your goals for treatment, questions, and the treatment options that you review with your health care team. You'll also find worksheets to track your medications, symptoms, and how heart failure is affecting your life.
