The signs of heart failure

If you suffer from shortness of breath,
fatigue or swollen ankles, it could
be a sign of heart failure.

Over 90,000 people in Ireland live with heart failure. However, heart failure doesn’t mean your heart is about to stop.

Most people live active and comfortable lives. Heart failure is a very manageable condition if caught and treated early.

If you’re unsure about your symptoms, please contact your doctor or call our helpline nurse on 1800 25 25 50 (Mon-Fri 9-5pm).
