Advanced Heart Failure
Advanced Heart Failure occurs when traditional medicine and treatment fail to make the heart muscle function efficiently and symptoms of shortness of breath, fatigue, and swelling persist despite taking medications. Our physicians at MCI specialize in diagnosing and treating this advanced disease state.

- Shortness of breath
