On this site, host ‘Anna’, an animated woman who speaks in a friendly, matter of fact way, guides the visitor through the website advice sections.

There are also animated explanations covering how the normal heart works, what goes wrong in HF, how the body compensates, an  much else (example in illustration).

Cardiologists and physicians who wish to advise patients that they can learn more about their HF condition via their own computers, should pass on this address: www.heartfailure.org
