The Truth About Heart Failure
Hearing the word “failure” associated with your heart can be scary. However, heart failure does not mean that your heart has stopped working. Instead, this chronic and progressive condition occurs when the heart isn’t pumping as efficiently as it should, and as a result your body isn’t receiving the oxygen it needs. In this important segment, Dr. Paul Mather explains Heart Failure as a chronic condition that can be managed and how the physicians at the Penn Medicine Heart Failure Program can help you get the best treatment for your condition.

Exercise is Medicine for Your Heart
Exercise can be exhausting, even before you start working out. With ever-changing guidelines and fitness fads, it's tough to know what's best for your body. Regardless, the best exercise program is a consistent one. The benefits of staying active have an overwhelmingly positive effect on your overall health and your heart. The World Health Organization (WHO) suggest that adults ages 18 to 64 do at least 150 minutes of a moderate exercise or at least 75 minutes of high-intensity physical activity each week. This recommendation can help to protect your heart from many disorders and other cardiovascular diseases. Listen in as Neel Chokshi, MD, Medical Director, Sports Cardiology and Fitness Program, shares great advice on beginning an exercise program and how it's never too late to start exercising. Even a small increase in activity is a positive change. Start out slow and before you know it you'll feel better - not just physically but mentally as well.
