SEE IF CCM® THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR YOU
QUESTIONS TO HELP DETERMINE IF CCM® THERAPY IS RIGHT FOR YOU OR YOUR LOVED ONE
- Has your doctor told you that you have a weakened or failing heart and prescribed you medications for it?
- Have you experienced any of the following?
– Difficulty breathing
– Trouble climbing a flight of stairs
– Fatigue or tiredness during the day
– Swelling in your legs
- Do your symptoms make it hard for you to accomplish your normal daily activities?
- Do you have an ejection fraction (a measurement of the heart’s pumping efficiency) of 25-45%?
If you answered yes to a majority of these questions, CCM® Therapy may be right for you or your loved one.
Heart failure symptoms can make you feel hopeless, but CCM® therapy may be a reason to feel hopeful again.
