The Department of Cardiology, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, organized “Amrita Heart Failure Update” – a practical guide to the management of heart failure on 22nd July 2018. The one-day meet saw the participation of cardiologists from India and abroad. 

People tended to confuse heart failure with cardiac arrest, though the latter was the risk people ran if heart failure was not attended to in time, said a team of cardiologists at the Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences at a press meet. Coronary artery diseases were the most common cause of heart failure, accounting for 71% of all cases and India had among the highest heart failure rates in the world, said K.U. Natarajan, professor and head of the department at Amrita.
