Congestive heart failure is a term used to describe a heart that is unable to perform its function anymore. The heart’s function is to pump blood to the lungs, so it gets oxygenated and then pumps that blood to the rest of the body. Heart failure may develop due to a variety of reasons which include previous heart attacks, hereditary syndromes, heart infections, valvular disease, and high blood pressure.

Congestive heart failure usually presents as shortness of breath, easy fatigability, fainting spells, and swelling in the legs. The treatment of this condition can be very complicated and needs to be strictly monitored by expert cardiologists. At Heart Wellness Group we make sure the symptoms of this condition do not get too unbearable by involving a multidisciplinary team to treat this very serious condition. The treatment for heart failure was very limited a few decades ago but now new research has brought ground-breakingly effective medications which our cardiologists prescribe.
