Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

 Here are Congestive Heart Failure (CHF)

Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a chronic progressive condition that affects the pumping power of your heart muscle.

In the early stages of CHF, you most likely won’t notice any changes in your health.

If your condition progresses, you’ll experience gradual changes in your body.

These symptoms can easily be misunderstood as colic or a respiratory infection.

Poor growth and low blood pressure can also be signs of heart failure in children.

You and your doctor may consider different treatments depending on your overall health and how far your condition has progressed.

Beta-blockers decrease the work the heart has to do and can reduce blood pressure and slow a rapid heart rhythm.

Diuretics reduce your body’s fluid content. CHF can cause your body to retain more fluid than it should.

If medications aren’t effective on their own, more invasive procedures may be required.

When the heart isn’t able to pump blood effectively, blood can get backed up in veins and tissues.
