Heart Attack Warning Signs!
to the American Heart Association, congestive heart failure (CHF), or heart failure,
is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough blood to the body's other
organs. This can result from
- narrowed arteries
that supply blood to the heart muscle - coronary artery disease.
- past heart
attack, or myocardial infarction, with scar tissue that interferes with the heart
muscle's normal work.
- high blood pressure.
- heart valve disease due
to past rheumatic fever or other causes.
- primary disease of the heart muscle
itself, called cardiomyopathy.
- heart defects present at birth congenital
- infection of the heart valves and/or heart muscle itself
endocarditis and/or myocarditis.
"failing" heart keeps working but not as efficiently as it should. People
with heart failure can't exert themselves because they become short of breath
As blood-flow out of the heart slows, blood returning
to the heart through the veins backs up, causing congestion in the tissues. Often
swelling (edema) results. Most often there's swelling in the legs and ankles,
but it can happen in other parts of the body, too. Sometimes fluid collects in
the lungs and interferes with breathing, causing shortness of breath, especially
when a person is lying down.
Heart failure also affects the
kidneys' ability to dispose of sodium and water. The retained water increases

Studies have shown that
- increase tolerance to cardiac stress
quality of life for heart patients
- increase cardiac efficiency
- maintain healthy energy levels in heart and muscle
improve exercise tolerance
- lower stress during exercise
