What is heart failure?
Heart failure is a disorder in which the heart loses its ability to pump blood efficiently throughout the body. The oxygen and nutrients in the blood provide the body with the energy it needs to operate efficiently.
Heart failure may affect the left, right, or both sides of the heart. If the left half of the heart fails (left ventricular failure), fluid will build up in the lungs due to congestion of the veins of the lungs.
If the right half of the heart fails (right ventricular failure), general body vein pressure will increase and fluid will accumulate in the body, especially the tissues of the legs and abdominal organs (of these, the liver is the organ most likely to be affected).

46. Congestive Heart Failure
Canadian site looking at prevention and treatment as well as evaluation of thisdisease.
Congestive heart failure The most frequent causes of relapse are improper observance of treatment, poorly controlled hypertension, other heart problems, and infections. How can we talk about prevention? Simply by examining the causes, i.e. ischaemic heart disease, high blood pressure, cardiomyopathies, diabetes, and valvulopathies. Since the first two conditions are the most frequently associated, we believe that there is a link between strategies for preventing ischaemic heart disease and the prevention of heart failure.

Congestive Heart Failure: Training for a Better Life
James R. Clark, MD, with Carl Sherman
Series Editor: Nicholas A. DiNubile, MD THE PHYSICIAN AND SPORTSMEDICINE - VOL 26 - NO. 8 - AUGUST 98 In Brief: Congestive heart failure (CHF) patients who exercise regularly can increase exercise tolerance, decrease dyspnea and fatigue, reduce the risk of arrhythmias, and improve quality of life. Initial stress testing is important for assessing a patient's physiologic response to exercise and for establishing a target heart rate for an individualized exercise program. Patients may need to begin aerobic exercise with interval training and progress slowly. Strength exercise is also useful. Exercise used along with the customarily prescribed CHF medications improves symptoms more than either modality alone. T he incidence of congestive heart failure (CHF) and the resulting death rate (1) have risen significantly in recent decades, partially because of the aging of the population. Over 4 million Americans now suffer from the disorder, which, broadly defined, is an inability of the heart to pump enough blood to meet the body's metabolic needs. The causes are many, but the vast majority of cases involve left ventricular dysfunction related to coronary artery disease, hypertension, or idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (2). CHF patients were traditionally counseled to rest and avoid exercise in order to delay disease progression and to promote diuresis induced by bed rest (3). However, CHF theory and clinical practice have changed radically, especially in the last decade, as research has demonstrated that exercise offers much gain at little risk (3-9). Indeed, most CHF patients who exercise can markedly improve their functional status and quality of life (3,5-8). In addition, exercise may reduce the risk of death for CHF patients, just as it does for patients who have coronary artery disease (10).

Essentials of the Diagnosis of Heart Failure
State University of New York Health Science Center at Brooklyn, Brooklyn, New York
H eart failure affects an estimated 4.9 million Americans, or 1 percent of adults 50 to 60 years of age and 10 percent of adults in their 80s. Each year, about 400,000 new cases of heart failure are diagnosed in the United States. This clinical syndrome is the most frequent cause of hospitalizations in the elderly and is responsible for 5 to 10 percent of all hospital admissions. Heart failure causes or contributes to approximately 250,000 deaths every year. The clinical syndrome of heart failure manifests when cellular respiration becomes impaired because the heart cannot pump enough blood to support the metabolic demands of the body, or when normal cellular respiration can only be maintained with an elevated left ventricular filling pressure.

Congestive heart failure, or heart failure, is a condition in which the heart is unable to adequately pump blood throughout the body and/or unable to prevent blood from "backing up" into the lungs. In most cases, heart failure is a process that occurs over time, when an underlying condition damages the heart or makes it work too hard, weakening the organ. Heart failure is characterized by shortness of breath (dyspnea) and abnormal fluid retention, which usually results in swelling (edema) in the feet and legs. Normal Blood Flow of the Heart The heart consists of four chambers: the right atrium , the left atrium , the right ventricle , and the left ventricle , and four major valves: the mitral valve , the tricuspid valve , the aortic valve , and the pulmonary valve . Atria are relatively thin-walled chambers that receive blood from the circulatory system and from the lungs. Ventricles are muscular chambers that pump blood into the circulatory system and into the lungs.

52. Coreg, Treatment For Hypertension, Recent Heart Attack And Heart Failure
Includes information for patients and families about heart failure diagnosis, treatment, healthy food choices, lifestyle and prescribing information.
It is important to take your medicine every day as directed by your doctor or healthcare provider. Do not stop taking Coreg suddenly, because you could have serious side effects, such as chest pain or a heart attack. If your doctor decides you should stop taking Coreg , your doctor or healthcare provider may slowly reduce your dose over a period of time before stopping it completely. Some common side effects associated with Coreg include shortness of breath, a slow heartbeat, weight gain, fatigue, dizziness or faintness. People taking Coreg who have any of these symptoms should call their doctor. Additionally, if patients experience fatigue or dizziness, they should sit or lie down and avoid driving or hazardous tasks. As with any medicine, there are some people who should not take Coreg . The people who should not take Coreg include those with severe heart failure who are hospitalized in the intensive care unit. Also, people who require certain intravenous medications that help support their circulation (inotropic medications) should not receive

Heart failure can occur in people of any age, even in young children (especially those born with a heart defect). However, it is much more common among older people, because older people are more likely to have disorders that damage the heart muscle and because age-related changes in the heart tend to make the heart pump less efficiently. Heart failure develops in about 1 of 100 people. The disorder is likely to become more common because people are living longer and because, in some countries, certain risk factors for heart disease (such as smoking, high blood pressure, and a high-fat diet) are affecting more people.

Angiotensin II - The Problem We are talking about the chemical messengers in the body called neurohormones . For those of us with heart failure, the neurohormone called angiotensin II is not a good thing. Angiotensin II helps controls the cardiovascular system. It causes blood vessels to shrink (vasoconstriction), which raises blood pressure. Angiotensin II also causes the body to release aldosterone - a substance that causes our kidneys to retain sodium and fluid, causing
