Heart Patients

From All Rights (Kol-Zchut) (www.kolzchut.org.il)

This portal contains information about various rights, services, and benefits provided for cardiac patients.

Heart diseases constitute the second leading cause of death in Israel (after cancer). Among the most common heart diseases are: heart failure (a group of illnesses that includes high blood pressure, coronary heart disease, myocarditis, arrhythmia, and valvular diseases); angina (angina pectoris), which is expressed through shortness of breath and chest pains; heart attack (if there is complete obstruction of the artery carrying blood to the heart); and cardiac arrest (sudden cessation of cardiac functioning).
Cardiac patients are in many cases entitled to social, medical, and financial rights as a result of their medical and health condition.
