Heart Failure
Osama Gusbi, MD Heart failure is the pathophysiological state in which an abnormality of cardiac function is responsible for the failure of the heart to pump blood at a rate commensurate with the requirements of the metabolizing tissues and/or doing so using abnormally elevated diastolic volumes. Heart failure represents a major public health problem in industrialized nations. It appears to be the only common cardiovascular condition that is increasing in prevalence and incidence. In the United States, heart failure is responsible for almost 1 million hospital admissions and 40,000 deaths annually. Heart failure should be distinguished from (1) conditions in which there is circulatory congestion consequent to abnormal salt and water retention but in which there is no disturbance of cardiac function per se and (2) noncardiac causes of inadequate cardiac output, including shock due to hypovolemia and redistribution of blood volume. The ventricles respond to a chronically increased hemodynamic burden with progressive hypertrophy. With volume overload, the ventricle is required to deliver an increased cardiac output for prolonged periods, e.g., valvular regurgitation, and it develops eccentric hypertrophy, i.e., cavity dilatation, with an increase in muscle mass such that the ratio between wall thickness and ventricular cavity remains relatively constant. With chronic pressure overload, as in aortic stenosis or untreated hypertension, the ventricle develops concentric hypertrophy, in which the ratio between wall thickness and ventricular cavity size increases.

We have had several questions recently about edema of the lower extremities in patients with congestive heart failure. Lymphedema causes swelling of the affected extremity; however, not all swollen extremities are caused by lymphedema. In congestive heart failure the heart does not work as well as it should. Think of the heart as a pump with an inlet and an outlet. When a pump does not work as well as it should, the amount of fluid pumped out by the pump is decreased. In addition to this, the amount of fluid that the pump is trying to remove remains high. Congestive heart failure is very similar. In congestive heart failure, the amount of blood pumped out by the heart is less than normal, decreasing the total amount of oxygen available to the tissues. Patients with congestive heart failure become easily fatigued because the heart cannot pump enough blood to satisfy the oxygen requirements during periods of exercise. Since the output from the heart is low, the input into the heart from the veins is also diminished and blood builds up behind the heart much like water builds up behind a dam.

Congestive Heart Failure
Heart Disease
Chronic Pain Therapies Main Menu More Symptoms Menu Depression Congestive heart failure is a type of heart disease in which the heart muscle is too weak to pump blood effectively, so that the flow of blood to vital organs is insufficient. Symptoms of congestive heart failure include fatigue, water retention ( edema ) , shortness of breath, diminished kidney function, and an enlarged heart. Integrated and alternative medicine recognize that pharmaceuticals may strengthen the heartbeat and lower blood pressure, but the underlying causes such as elevated blood pressure ( hypertension ) , damage to the heart from viral infection or a heart attack, and nutritional deficiencies that hinder optimal heart function must also be addressed to effectively treat congestive heart failure. Arteriosclerosis (clogged coronary arteries) may be another related or underlying cause of congestive heart failure. Your doctor will help you choose the most appropriate therapies to deal with congestive heart failure from among the following:
  • Homeopathic, isopathic and herbal detoxification protocols

Facts about Congestive Heart Failure
What is heart failure?
Heart failure occurs when the heart loses its ability to pump enough blood through the body. Usually, the loss in pumping action is a symptom of an underlying heart problem, such as coronary artery disease.
The term heart failure suggests a sudden and complete stop of heart activity. But, actually, the heart does not suddenly stop. Rather, heart failure usually develops slowly, often over years, as the heart gradually loses its pumping ability and works less efficiently. Some people may not become aware of their condition until symptoms appear years after their heart began its decline.
How serious the condition is depends on how much pumping capacity the heart has lost. Nearly everyone loses some pumping capacity as he or she ages. But the loss is significantly more in heart failure and often results from a heart attack or other disease that damages the heart.
The severity of the condition determines the impact it has on a person's life. At one end of the spectrum, the mild form of heart failure may have little effect on a person's life; at the other end, severe heart failure can interfere with even simple activities and prove fatal. Between those extremes, treatment often helps people lead full lives.
But all forms of heart failure, even the mildest, are a serious health problem, which must be treated. To improve their chance of living longer, patients must take care of themselves, see their physician regularly, and closely follow treatments.

Researchers: Special pacemakers may extend lives
Story Tools CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) Special pacemakers designed to correct a defect that affects close to 2 million heart failure patients in the United States can also prolong their lives, an analysis found. While such pacemakers have been shown to improve quality of life and exercise capacity, their effects on survival had been unclear. "I was surprised by the magnitude" of the effects, said lead author Dr. David Bradley, a Johns Hopkins Hospital cardiologist. Industry-funded studies have shown that the special devices improve the heart's pumping action in a process called cardiac resynchronization. Some studies had hinted that they might also extend lives but lacked the statistical power to make that link. By pooling the results of four recent studies involving 1,634 patients, the researchers found that the devices reduced the death rate from heart failure by 51 percent among heart failure patients. Of these, 1.7 percent died within three to six months of getting the special pacemakers, compared with 3.5 percent of patients who got similar pacemakers but had the special feature inactivated. The activated devices also were linked to a 29 percent reduction in hospitalization for complications related to heart failure.
