Heart failure symptom checker

This symptom checker includes the main symptoms of heart failure and is designed to help you evaluate these potential symptoms. It can serve as a basis for discussion with your doctors. The symptom checker is not intended to be used to diagnose heart failure or to replace medical advice.


Even though heart failure is a chronic condition, it can be effectively managed. This means that being able to recognize and check the symptoms of chronic heart failure is especially important. Use our symptom checker to check your symptoms. You may also find it a useful tool to discuss your symptoms during an appointment with your doctor.


This symptom checker has been developed by Novartis with patient groups and expert doctors. It takes into consideration recommendations from medical societies. This symptom checker is designed for your personal use and Novartis will not collect any personal information in connection with its use. Novartis will not have any liability from any and all claims, costs, losses, liabilities and damages of any sort, whether direct, indirect, special, consequential or otherwise, arising out of or related to your use of the symptom checker. The checker has been designed to check symptoms of chronic heart failure only.
