Heart failure refers to the condition
when the pumping power of the heart fails to meet the circulatory demands
of the body. Heart failure usually is the end phase of a long-lasting heart
disease and requires physician monitoring, special therapeutic regimens and
an adequate change in the style of life. Comprehensive programs for the management
of heart failure are available through University of Iowa Health Care. Chase
will discuss patient issues related to heart failure and treatment modalities.
Chase received his medical degree
from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, N.C., and completed
a residency at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas
and a fellowship at the UI Hospitals and Clinics. He joined University of
Iowa Health Care in 1999.
Chase is an associate in the American
College of Physicians and an affiliate in training in the American College
of Cardiology. His research interest is in the area of heart failure.
