Jeffrey Testani, MD, MTR

Cardiovascular Medicine, Heart Failure

Biography

Jeffrey Testani, MD, MTR (master of science in translational research) is a cardiologist who specializes in advanced heart failure. People with advanced heart failure experience shortness of breath and other symptoms even while at rest despite conventional therapies and strategies. 

Dr. Testani’s work focuses on the connections between fluid build-up and heart failure. When the heart is unable to pump an adequate supply of blood to the body, the kidneys respond by increasing the volume of fluids. Dr. Testani and fellow researchers have determined that a diabetes medication can reduce fluid build-up in diabetic patients with heart failure. 

Dr. Tetany’s  current research involves studying hundreds of heart patients, producing 500,000 biospecimens, or samples, that can be used to determine specific paths and characteristics that lead to heart failure. 

Dr. Testani is an associate professor of medicine (cardiology) at Yale School of Medicine.
