Chronic Heart Failure


Chronic heart failure is also known as CHF. Your heart is a pump and it pumps blood rich in oxygen and nutrients to all parts of your body and helps remove the waste products. In CHF, your heart doesn't pump as well as it should and the blood backs up in the veins. A backup in the veins of the lungs causes shortness of breath, while a backup in the veins of the legs causes swelling or edema. This is a manageable condition, which you can control with proper medications and life style changes. Weight gain is one of the first signs that you may have; other symptoms will follow if you do not monitor your weight.
