The third program in cycle «Games of chess 3.0»
In everyday practice, most physicians working in the therapeutic field deal with congestive heart failure (CHF) patients. Regardless of wide diagnostic and treatment possibilities of current medecine, we have again to stop and ask ourselves: do we use all resources to manage this complex many-sided pathophysiological syndrome?
According to the Russian guidelines (2016), rate of patients with CHF NYHA-FC I-IV increased from 4.9% (1998) to 8.8% (2014) in a representative sample of the European part of the Russian Federation. The proportion of patients with severe CHF (NYHA-FC III-IV) significantly increased from 1.2% to 4.1%.
That is the reason that, in the next program «Games of chess 3.0» we again go to the search for new ways to solve problems of CHF patients and your role is incontestable. Only the partnership between physician and patient can lead to the success of treatment, even such a complex problem as CHF.
