  • Heart Failure

In some people the heart is unable to pump enough blood to support the other parts of the body due to heart failure. In other people, the heart muscle becomes stiff and rigid, which blocks or reduces the flow of blood through the heart. Heart failure can affect the right, left, or both sides of your heart. It is either acute or lasts for a long time. The symptoms of acute heart failure come on suddenly but their effects wear off quickly. This usually happens after a heart attack or because of a problem with the heart valves (which control the flow of blood).

Heart failure can cause the chambers of your heart to stretch so that it can pump more blood to the other parts of your body. It works for some time but after some time it will weaken the walls of your heart. If this happens, fluid can build up in your hands, ankles, feet, lungs, and other organs. Heart failure is estimated to affect about 1% or 80-100 lakh people in India.

Types of heart failure

Heart failure can happen in the right or left side of your heart. Both parts of your heart can also fail.

Types of heart failure:

Left ventricular failure: 

Left ventricular failure is the most common type of heart failure. The left ventricle of the heart is located in the lower part of your heart. It provides oxygenated blood to the body. Left heart failure occurs when the left ventricle of the heart does not pump blood properly. Due to this, the body does not get enough oxygenated blood and blood accumulates in the lungs due to which there is difficulty in breathing.

Right heart failure: 

The right ventricle of the heart pumps blood to the lungs and takes oxygen from them. When the right side of the heart is unable to perform this function properly, then right side heart failure occurs. Failure of the left side of the heart causes blood to pool in the lungs, due to which the right side of the heart has to work harder. This pressure causes the right side of the heart to fail. Failure of the right side of the heart can also be caused by lung disease.

There are also side types of heart failure:

Systolic Heart Failure: 

When the heart muscle does not contract normally and there is less flow of oxygenated blood to the body, it is called systolic heart failure.

Diastolic heart failure: 

When your heart contracts normally but your heart ventricles don't relax, causing less blood to get to your heart and increased pressure in your lungs. This causes fluid to build up in your lungs, legs, and abdomen.

Stages of heart failure

Heart failure has the following stages:

Stage A (A):

When you are at risk of heart failure, you have high blood pressure, diabetes, coronary artery disease (CAD) or metabolic syndrome and you have had cardiotoxic drug therapy, alcohol consumption, rheumatic If you have a family history of fever, cardiomyopathy, then you are in this stage.

Stage B (B): 

If you have never had symptoms of heart failure but you have systolic left ventricular dysfunction (the left chamber of the heart does not pump blood properly) and you have had heart attacks, if you are suffering from heart disease or cardiomyopathy, then you may have stage B.

Stage C:

 If you have heart failure and have shortness of breath, fatigue, and difficulty exercising, you may have stage C.

Stage D (D): 

If you have systolic heart failure and severe symptoms are felt then you have stage D (D).

Symptoms of heart failure are:

  • Symptoms of heart failure are as follows:

  • Extreme tiredness 

  • Sudden weight gain 

  • Loss of appetite Persistent cough 

  • Irregular pulse 

  • Palpitations (abnormally fast heartbeat) 

  • Abdominal swelling 

  • Difficulty in breathing 

  • Swelling of feet and ankles varicose veins

Due to heart failure

How, when, why does heart failure happen?

Coronary Artery Disease: It is a disease of the arteries that supply oxygen and blood to the heart. If these arteries become blocked or narrowed, the flow of blood to the heart is reduced and the heart cannot pump blood properly.

Heart attack: If a coronary artery suddenly becomes blocked, blood to the heart muscle stops.

Cardiomyopathy: problems with the heart's arteries and blood flow; Infection; The heart can be damaged by drinking alcohol and using drugs. Many other diseases and family problems can also lead to heart failure.

High blood pressure: High blood pressure causes the heart to work harder than normal to circulate blood throughout the body. When this continues for a long time, the muscles of the heart become thick due to the extra work. Because of this, the muscles of the heart become stiff or weak and it becomes difficult for them to pump blood.

Problems with the valves of the heart: The valves in your heart allow blood to flow properly. Any heart problem, Coronary Artery Disease, damaged valves due to heart related infection makes your heart have to do extra work. When this goes on for a long time, your heart can become weak due to the extra work. Damaged valves can be replaced or repaired.

Myocarditis: Myocarditis is a viral inflammation of the heart muscle that can lead to heart failure.

If you have a heart problem from birth, such as problems with the heart chambers or heart valves, the healthy parts of your heart have to work harder to pump blood, which can lead to heart failure.

Abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia): An abnormal heart rhythm can cause a rapid heart rate that causes your heart to work harder. When this happens over a long period of time, the extra work can cause your heart to become weak and lead to heart failure. If the heart rate slows down, your heart will not get enough blood and your risk of heart failure will increase.

Problems that cause the heart to work too hard, such as heart valve disease, thyroid disease, kidney disease, and heart disease can also lead to heart failure.

Heart failure can also be caused by diseases such as HIV, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, hemochromatosis (accumulation of iron) and amyloidosis (accumulation of protein).

Viruses that affect the heart muscle, severe heart infections, allergic reactions, blood clots in the lungs, medications or diseases that affect the whole body can all cause acute heart failure.
