Heart failure—a condition in which the heart doesn’t pump adequate amounts of blood throughout the body—results in more than one million hospitalizations in the U.S. every year. That’s approximately 3,000 every day. A quarter of those patients—about 800—will be readmitted within 30 days, and half of those patients will die within five years.
