I thought that this article was a very useful resource for new nurses and even nurses who have some experience to use as a refresher if you do not deal with CHF a lot. I particularly liked the the different links that went to different conversation points such as signs and symptoms, what heart failure actually is, and the different conditions associated with heart failure such as cardiomegaly. I would definitely use this as a resource for patients when trying to explain this new diagnosis.
