This Website is Created in Memory of my Son,
Zachary Chase Oakes,
born Fri. Oct. 13th, 1995 ,6 weeks early.
Zac was born with a very rare Heart Disease,
called Transposition of the Great Vessels.
At this time , there were very few cases in the US
with this type of Transpostion.
Zac would undergo his First Heart operation at only 4 days old. Without Surgery right away ,Zac had no chance of survival. Zac remained in the Hospital approx a month following Surgery. He seemed to go down hill , but bounced back pretty quickly. There were a few times I broke down wondering if I would be able to take my baby home.

Table of Contents Introduction to How Congestive Heart Failur... What is CHF? Causes of CHF How the Body Compensates for a Failing Heart Symptoms of Congestive Heart Failure Physical Exam Findings Diagnostic Tests Treatment of CHF Medications Surgery for CHF Lots More Information Heart failure, or congestive heart failure (CHF), is a very common disease, afflicting approximately 4.8 million Americans. While many other forms of heart disease have become less common in recent years, CHF has been increasing steadily. This may be because more people with other forms of heart disease survive longer but are left with damaged hearts, which leads to CHF. Also, as the elderly population increases, there are more people at high risk of developing CHF. Approximately 400,000 new CHF cases occur each year, and it is the most common diagnosis in hospital patients over 65. In this article, we will discuss congestive heart failure its causes, its warning signs and how it can be treated.

Exercise Treatment of Congestive Heart Failure Sometimes, following damage to the heart muscle from an illness, (heart attack, viral infection or some other illness), the heart muscle is weakened. The heart looses the ability to feed oxygenated blood to the body or remove waste products from the organs of the body. This weakening of the heart muscle is called congestive heart failure or cardiomyopathy. Symptoms that are commonly associated with congestive heart failure are:
  • Fatigue Shortness of breath, especially while laying flat or with any exertion Loss of appetite Swollen legs or ankles Weight gain Decrease urination during the day and increased urination at night
People develop congestive heart failure for different reasons. Your doctor will take a careful history of your condition and often recommends tests to help determine the underlying cause. The physician may recommend an echocardiogram , chest x-ray, electrocardiogram or stress test , lab test or angiography (heart catheterization). Once heart failure is diagnosed, it is often treated with medications, salt restriction and a balance of exercise and rest.

Discusses associated significant cardiovascular derangements in hypothyroidism. Includes pericardial effusion, heart failure, and ischemic heart disease.
Thyroid Disease and Echocardiography
E-chocardiography Journal: Alphabetical List Chronological List Images Home Page Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are both associated with clinically significant cardiovascular derangements. In hypothyroidism, these include pericardial effusion, heart failure, and the complex interrelationship between hypothyroidism and ischemic heart disease. Cardiovascular disorders associated with hyperthyroidism include atrial tachyarrhythmias, mitral valve dysfunction, and heart failure. Although these usually occur in individuals with intrinsic heart disease, thyroid dysfunction alone rarely causes serious but reversible cardiovascular dysfunction. (1) In hypothyroidism a measurable abnormality of the left ventricle is the lengthened duration of contraction and relaxation, normalizing after restoration of euthyroidism. The ejection fraction and cardiac reserve are only slightly diminished. There is reversible diastolic dysfunction. Diastolic hypertension due to hypothyroidism is the most frequent cause of endocrine hypertension. The relation between accelerated atherosclerosis and hypothyroidism is not definitively proven.(2) Hypothyroidism produces a decrease in myocardial contractility and an increase in left ventricular mass, both related to the severity of hormone deficiency. Pericardial effusion is mainly related to thyrotrophin plasma levels. Most of cardiac manifestations of hypothyroidism reverse with thyroid replacement. (3)

Why We Must Get It Right
By Dr. William Abraham
CHF is being described as the next epidemic. Five million Americans have heart failure and up to 700,000 new cases are diagnosed every year. This illness causes one million hospitalizations and has a part in 250,000 deaths every year in the USA alone. Heart failure is the only heart condition actually on the increase.
Medicare spends more on CHF than it does on all forms of cancer combined. The yearly direct cost of CHF care is anywhere from 10 to 38 billion dollars US. Most of this cost comes from hospital stays for acute, or

Our emphasis on total patient care and cardiac disease management creates a unique program with excellent outcomes and personal attention. Our team works with each patient to determine the most suitable treatment for your condition.
Program Highlights
California Pacific initiated the nation’s first heart transplant service in a private institution in 1984 and has been at the forefront of disease management and transplant ever since. We were the first center in the nation to successfully place and maintain a patient on a bi-ventricular assist device (BiVAD) while waiting for a donor heart and have been a leader in developing the “bridge-to-transplantation.”
With heart disease affecting an estimated 58 million people in the U.S. alone, medical researchers continue to pursue better treatment options. To this end, California Pacific is one of 20 clinical trial sites for the MicroMed DeBakey VAD®,

74. HeartPoint: Congestive Heart Failure
Explains what heart failure is, symptoms, what to watch for, evaluation, prognosis,medication other related issues.

Heart failure at one time was an almost untreatable disorder. Times have changed. Today, there are many important and effective measures that can be utilized to improve the symptoms, and the survival, of patients with congestive heart failure. Perhaps more than in other conditions, it is important to understand what is going on, and for the patient to participate in the care of this condition. It is very common, affecting over 2 million people in the United States including one in 10 people over the age of 75, and is the leading cause of hospital admissions for patients in the Medicare population. It is increasing in frequency as our population ages and as we find better ways to help people survive initial heart attacks they now can survive to experience CHF. It may be worthwhile to learn or review about [ How the Heart Works ] now or at some point in your reading of this section. ©COPY;1997 HeartPoint Updated June 1998

Diastolic heart failure
The condition exists and needs to be recognised, prevented, and treated Diastolic heart failure refers to the clinical syndrome of heart failure with a preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (0.50 or more) in the absence of major valve disease. About a third of patients with heart failure seen by clinicians have diastolic heart failure as defined above. A simple classification of heart failure into systolic versus diastolic is useful because the two conditions have a distinctive pathophysiology and different prognoses.

6th Annual Intensive Review of Cardiology Cardiology for the Clinician The Atrial Fibrillation Summit
Heart failure is a clinical syndrome characterized by inadequate systemic perfusion to meet the body's metabolic demands as a result of impaired cardiac pump function. This may be further subdivided into either systolic or diastolic heart failure. In systolic heart failure, there is reduced cardiac contractility, whereas in diastolic heart failure there is impaired cardiac relaxation and abnormal ventricular filling. The body, sensing inadequate organ perfusion, activates multiple systemic neurohormonal pathways which compensate initially by redistributing blood flow to vital organs, but later exacerbate the patient's symptoms and lead to clinical deterioration. ETIOLOGY The most common cause of heart failure is left ventricular systolic dysfunction (about 60% of patients). In this category, most cases are a result of end-stage coronary artery disease, either with a history of myocardial infarction(s) or chronically underperfused yet viable myocardium. In many patients, both processes are present simultaneously.

78. - Coreg And Beta-blockers For Heart Failure
Information for patients with congestive heart failure.
New CHF Drugs

IV Drugs


More beta-blocker info here Updated May 1, 2005 Beta-blockers approved by the US FDA for heart failure include Toprol-XL and Coreg. Toprol-XL blocks beta-1 receptors. Coreg blocks beta-1, beta-2, and alpha-receptors. They are both good for heart failure. Coreg lowers blood pressure more, so if you already have low blood pressure, you might want to use Toprol-XL. Toprol-XL costs less, and may improve exercise ability more.
Target dose
for Toprol-XL is usually 190mg once a day. Coreg target dose depends on your weight - if you weigh 187 pounds or less, it will probably be 25mg twice a day. If you weigh more then 187 pounds, it will probably be 50mg twice a day. With either drug, you should start at low dose and work your way up slowly, raising dose about every 2 weeks.
Coreg's generic name is carvedilol with brand names in different countries like Dilitrend, Dimitone, and Kredex. Toprol-XL is the controlled release version of metoprolol, but is not the same thing as "metoprolol."
