Test yourself

Test here for signs of cardiac insufficiency or mitral regurgitation. Are you quickly exhausted and out of breath when, for example, climbing stairs? Many symptoms are often dismissed as old age problems. However, when there are multiple problems that occur at the same time, it may be a sign of ongoing cardiac insufficiency, mitral valve regurgitation, or other heart defects.
