Heart Failure : Introduction , Symptoms , Causes , Risk Factors



Heart failure, sometimes referred to as congestive coronary failure , occurs when your cardiac muscle doesn't pump blood also because it should. Certain conditions, like narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high vital sign , gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently.


Not all conditions that cause coronary failure are often reversed, but treatments can improve the signs and symptoms of coronary failure and assist you live longer. Lifestyle changes — like exercising, reducing sodium in your diet, managing stress and losing weight — can improve your quality of life. One way to prevent heart failure is to prevent and control conditions that cause heart failure, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity.



Heart failure are often 
ongoing (chronic), or your condition may start suddenly (acute).

Heart failure signs and symptoms may include:



Ø   Shortness of breath (dyspnea) when you exert yourself or when you lie down

Ø   Fatigue and weakness

Ø   Swelling (edema) in your legs, ankles and feet

Ø   Rapid or irregular heartbeat

Ø   Reduced ability to exercise

Ø   Persistent cough or wheezing with white or pink blood-tinged phlegm

Ø   Increased need to urinate at night

Ø   Swelling of your abdomen (ascites)

Ø   Very rapid weight gain from fluid retention

Ø   Lack of appetite and nausea

Ø   Difficulty concentrating or decreased alertness

Ø   Sudden, severe shortness of breath and coughing up pink, foamy mucus

Ø   Chest pain if your heart failure is caused by a heart attack



Heart failure often develops after other conditions have damaged or weakened your heart. However, the guts 
doesn't got to be weakened to cause coronary failure . It also can occur if the guts becomes too stiff.
In coronary failure , the most pumping chambers of your heart (the ventricles) may become stiff and not fill properly between beats. In some cases of heart failure, your heart muscle may become damaged and weakened, and the ventricles stretch (dilate) to the point that the heart can't pump blood efficiently throughout your body.

Over time, the guts 
can not continue with the traditional demands placed thereon to pump blood to the remainder of your body.An ejection fraction is a crucial measurement of how well your heart is pumping and is employed to assist classify coronary failure and guide treatment. In a healthy heart, the ejection fraction is 50 percent or higher — meaning that quite half the blood that fills the ventricle is pumped out with each beat.

But coronary failure can occur even with a traditional ejection fraction. This happens if the guts muscle becomes stiff from conditions like high vital sign .


Risk factors

A single risk factor could also be 
enough to cause coronary failure , but a mixture of things also increases your risk.

Risk factors include:



Ø     High blood pressure. Your heart works harder than it has to if your blood pressure is high.

Ø     Coronary artery disease. Narrowed arteries may limit your heart's supply of oxygen-rich blood, leading to weakened cardiac muscle .

Ø      Diabetes. Having diabetes increases your risk of high vital sign and arteria coronaria disease.

Ø      Congenital heart defects. Some people that develop coronary failure were born with structural           heart   defects.

Ø      Valvular heart disease. People with valvular heart condition have a better risk of coronary failure .

Ø      Viruses. A virus infection may have damaged your cardiac muscle .

Ø      Tobacco use. Using tobacco can increase your risk of heart failure.

Ø      Obesity. People who are obese have a better risk of developing coronary failure .
