If you understand what happens when you’re diagnosed with heart failure, your treatment plan will make more sense to you.
Your heart pumps oxygen-rich blood and nutrients all over your body.
Your heart is unable to pump the blood your body needs to function. This is the result of a weak heart, weakened by conditions or diseases that affect the heart muscle.
Any time of heart damage weakens the muscle and may lead to heart failure.
Whatever your symptoms, they are caused by either a buildup of fluid or lack of oxygen in your tissues. You may experience some or all of these symptoms.
