New treatments

There have been many new developments in treating heart failure. If medication and lifestyle changes are not enough to control your symptoms, your doctor may suggest:

Cardiac Resynchronization Therapy (CRT)
A normal heart sends electrical signals to both lower chambers or "ventricles" of the heart to make them pump at the same time. Sometimes in heart failure patients, the two chambers do not pump together. A special pacemaker called CRT (a small battery-powered device) is placed under the skin that helps make the two sides of the heart beat in a coordinated manner. CRT is a pacemaker that tells both ventricles to pump at the same time, thus reducing your heart failure symptoms and increasing your ability to exercise and be more active.

Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD)
Some patients with heart failure have dangerously fast heartbeats called "Ventricular Tachycardia" or "Ventricular Fibrillation” which can cause serious symptoms such as fainting or even death. An ICD is like a pacemaker that can be inserted under your skin, with an aim to recognise a dangerous heartbeat. The ICD then returns it to a normal beat through an electrical signal. If your heart needs both CRT and ICD; they can be placed at the same time using one device.

Heart Pumps
A Ventricular Assist Device (VAD) is a mechanical pump inserted into your body to improve blood flow. When your heart is unable to pump enough blood to the various organs of your body, an open heart surgery is required to implant the mechanical pump. The VAD works together with your own heart to pump more effectively. VADs can stabilize your heart condition, thereby allowing you to become stronger and feel better. VADs are also used as an alternative to heart transplantation for patients who are waiting for a new heart.

Heart Transplantation
Heart Transplantation is an operation to replace a diseased heart with a healthy donor heart. Heart Transplantation is a treatment used for severe heart failure, when medication or surgery is ineffective. Heart Transplant can dramatically improve the survival and quality of life of patients with severe heart failure. However, transplant candidates often have to wait for a long time before a suitable donor heart is available.

BLK Heart Failure Clinic
BLK Heart Centre runs a Heart Failure Clinic dedicated to patients with heart failure. Patients are educated about the cause and treatment of heart failure and proper counselling is done to stabilise their symptoms. Our focus is to avoid unnecessary hospitalisations and improve quality of life of heart failure patients. The Centre offers a patient and family-centered approach to care.
