ACC/AHA Heart Failure Staging System

The 2013 revised American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) Guidelines for the Evaluation and Management of Heart Failure identify four stages that categorize the evolution and progression of heart failure (HF).

Stages A and B of the ACC/AHA will be covered in this Module - 1. Each stage will describe the strategies and interventions recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) and the American College of Cardiology (ACC) for the prevention or treatment of a specific stage of heart failure.
