OVERVIEW

One in six people will develop heart failure.1,2 More than 670,000 new cases are diagnosed annually in the US3 — 26 million patients worldwide.3 Heart failure is the most common cause of hospitalizations due to cardiovascular disease in patients over 654. These patients also face many personal challenges:

  • 50% mortality at 5 years5
  • Decreased quality of life
  • Restricted daily activities
  • Increased anxiety

HOW MEDTRONIC CAN HELP

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT) is a beneficial way to manage this disease. CRT is proven to6-14:

  • Improve cardiac function
  • Improve quality of life
