Information About Heart Failure And Surgery Treatment
What is Heart Failure?? Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart can no longer pump enough blood to the rest of the body. In this condition blood moves through the heart and body at a slower rate, and pressure in the heart increases. Therefore, the heart cannot pump enough oxygen and nutrients to meet the body's needs. The chambers of the heart respond by stretching to hold more blood to pump through the body or by becoming thicker and stiffer. This helps to keep the blood moving for a short while, but then the heart muscle walls weaken and are not able to pump as strongly. Heart failure is the leading cause of hospitalization in people over age 65.
