Heart failure

Heart failure affects 1.2 million patients in Spain that represent 3.8% of total health expenditure. The annual expenditure per patient rises to 18,000 euros, which can be increased considerably depending on the hospital admissions of each of them. The key to reducing these figures is prevention from an early age, and once the problem is diagnosed, success will depend on the patient’s follow-up with the pharmacological indications prescribed by the specialist.
