The phrase "heart failure" implies that there is nothing that can be done because the heart is no longer beating. In actuality, heart failure occurs when the heart's pumping function is subpar. Despite the fact that the names are occasionally used interchangeably, congestive heart failure is a specific type of heart failure that needs prompt medical intervention. Congestive heart failure, often known as heart failure, is a condition where the heart muscle is unable to pump blood as effectively as it should. When this occurs, blood hourly pools and fluid in the lungs may rupture, which makes breathing difficult.

The heart becomes too weak or stiff to fill and pump blood properly due to certain heart problems, such as narrowing of the heart's blood vessels, high blood pressure, and heavy meals. The signs and symptoms of heart failure can be improved with the right medication, which can also extend some people's lives. Your quality of life can be improved by making societal adjustments like losing weight, exercising, cutting back on salt in your diet, and managing stress. Some individuals with heart failure may require a heart transplant or a Ventricular Assist Device due to their severe symptoms (VAD).

Although the risk of heart failure does not decrease with age, the likelihood of heart failure increases significantly as you become older. Heart failure affects both men and women, although there are some variances. Compared to men, women are more likely to develop heart failure later in life. High blood pressure in women can lead to heart failure, yet their EF is normal. Breathing difficulties may be worse for women than for males. There are no distinctions in how men and women with heart failure are treated.

Heart failure has many different causes, however there are mainly two forms of the illness. It's them, HFrEF stands for heart failure with exceptional left ventricular function. In order to pump the appropriate amount of oxygenated blood to the rest of the body, the lower left ventricle expands (enlarges) and becomes unable to push (contract) Outfit. HFpEF stands for heart failure with preserved left ventricular function. The lower chambers of the heart (ventricles) are thicker and stiffer than usual, yet the heart still contracts and pumps normally. As a result, the ventricles are unable to properly relax and fill completely. Less blood is pumped to the rest of the body as the heart contracts because there is less blood in the ventricles.

The stage and underlying cause of CHF, as well as the patient's age, sex, and socioeconomic situation, all affect the prognosis. A through D is the different phases of CHF. Stage A: High risk of heart failure without structural heart disease or heart failure symptoms; stage B: Structural heart disease without any indications or symptoms of heart failure; stage C: Structural heart disease with past or present heart failure symptoms; stage D: Severe heart failure.
