"New Hope for old Hearts."

About: Leeds General Infirmary

Anything else?

I am now almost four years into that journey called Heart Failure. The best regime of treatment I have had, including optimum medicines and even a life saving ICD. However by December 2012 I was still slowly 'sinking' and was having to become a '3 pillow man' at night. A visit to my Cardiologist that month added Ivabradine to my meds and the turn around has been remarkable, most thankfully. Experiencing the slow but steady reclamation of Lung Function and being able to return to sleeping 'flat' is simply marvelous!
