There are many causes of heart failure (HF), including structural, genetic, and environmental factors. The assessment of HF should focus on elucidating any potentially reversible etiologies, as well as assessing any potential comorbidities that could complicate treatment. This may include a comprehensive metabolic panel, a complete blood count, iron and ferritin levels, and further specific testing guided by clinical history and physical examination. Cardiac-specific testing and prognostic factors for heart failure are often useful as well. The goal of therapy for chronic HF is to improve symptom management and quality of life, decrease hospitalizations, and decrease overall mortality associated with this disease.
As always, Dr. Raj is helping me understand. Absolutely love it.
Dr. Raj is an excellent teacher. He makes me wanna study more and I'm looking forward to listen to his lectures. I think he's one of the best in lecture and most definitely my favourite teacher thus far. Cardiology is hard to understand for stupid people no matter how hard he tries to simplify. I understand why other people don't like him. They want plain lectures where the lecturer reads slides only. Medicine is not for dummies fellas.
I have to repeat everything he says three times because of his way of expressing himself, I don't mean the accent, thats fine, but how he puts his sentences together for explaining something is confusing. This is being made way worse by the graphics and the fact that he can't point at what he actually means while he explains it. Also there is no legend to the curves that he explains.
the graphs are not at all explained and vague terms are used which confuses the concept
