The Prevention of Heart Failure
Date:9/22/2013

ORLANDO, Fla., Sept. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The 17th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Heart Failure Society of America (HFSA) will feature a session today entitled "The Prevention of Heart Failure." The session is being presented by HFSA and the American Heart Association.

Dr. Jay Cohn, Professor of Medicine at the University of Minnesota Medical School, will discuss the abnormalities of the arteries and the heart that result in cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality. Dr. Cohn explains that these abnormalities can be detected years before people become sick.

"By detecting these abnormalities, we can identify individuals who will develop not only heart failure, but all cardiovascular diseases," said Dr. Cohn. "Our emphasis should be on detection and individualized treatment to prevent cardiovascular disease as a cause of sickness and death."

In addition to Dr. Cohn, the session will feature several other practitioners who will discuss screening for the risk of heart failure, the progression of heart failure and medical therapies to prevent heart failure.

There is also an app for the Annual Meeting available in the Apple Store by searching HFSA. There is no registration fee for accredited journalists. Interview areas will be available on-site in addition to a press room.  You may follow news from the meeting on Twitter @HFSA and #HFSA.
