heart failure classification

The New York Heart Association classifies the severity of heart failure based on physical exertion

  • Doctors often describe the severity of heart failure by how much the patient’s physical activity is limited.
  • One of the most frequently used heart failure classification systems is the New York Heart Association (NYHA) Functional Classification.
  • Each class in this system describes a patient’s symptoms while performing physical activities.
  • Classifying heart failure based on how a person functions during exertion is a strong indicator of the patient’s outcome.
