Heart Failure

What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure occurs when the heart cannot pump enough blood to the rest of the body. Symptoms include difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, fatigue, swollen ankles, legs, or feet, vein inflammation, and swollen abdomen. Causes of heart failure can include heart attack, arrhythmias, congenital heart disease, and heart valve disease.

Treatment for heart failure depends on the severity. Surgeries and transplants may be needed for more severe cases, but for less severe cases, monitoring and medications may prolong life. Common drug classes used to treat heart failure are ACE inhibitors, beta blockers, ARBs, loop diuretics, and thiazide diuretics.
