Heart failure

When the heart grows weaker, it can limit the activities we are able to do. Any form of physical exertion can feel like really hard work. We help you manage the symptoms and stop your condition from getting worse with our CARE4CARDIO® programme.

The advantages for you

  • You’ll be coached by a professional.
  • It gives you more control over your condition.
  • You'll learn how to recognise the early warning signs and pay attention to your weight.
  • You'll be able to respond quickly to symptoms of heart failure such as breathlessness or swollen legs.
  • You can often avoid having to go to hospital.

Good to know

Your aids
You will be given electronic scales and an interactive monitoring device.
Everyday security
The monitoring device will ask you five standard questions about typical symptoms of heart failure every day.
Not a substitute for a doctor
CARE4CARDIO® complements your doctor’s advice, but is not intended as a substitute.

How it works

  1. Take the test on the Swiss Heart Foundation website (in German) to find out whether you have symptoms of heart failure.
  2. To register, complete the consent form (PDF in German).
  3. Send the completed form to our partner HCGS. They will then contact you directly.

The programme is currently only available in German.
