Heart Failure

About this site:

This web site was created as a quick reference guide to nursing students when caring for a patient with heart failure.  The site entails the pathophysiology of heart failure, types of heart failure, and the common medications used to treat heart failure.  Additionally, the student nurse will find information related to relevant nursing assessments, nursing diagnoses and nursing interventions to use when caring for a patient with heart failure.  Please click on the red hexagon at the top of the page to see further pages.

This web site was created as course requirement for NUR 783 Health Care Informatics-University of Wisconsin Oshkosh.  In the future the author hopes to incorporate other common  medical diagnoses typically seen in an acute care setting.
