Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart no longer pumps blood adequately enough to circulate it properly to other parts of the body. This causes fluid (mostly water) to seep from the capillary vessels causing a variety of symptoms including difficulty breathing and extreme fatigue.
The strategy for treating congestive heart failure begins with controlling the amount of fluid in the body so that the heart doesn’t have to work as hard to circulate fluid and blood. Medications are available to decrease fluid in the body as well as help the heart pump more productively. Our medical providers can help with ongoing management of the condition to help reduce the chances of further complications with the disease.
