Heart failure means that your heart muscle doesn't pump as much blood as your body needs. Failure doesn't mean that your heart has stopped.

It means that your heart is not pumping as well as it should. Because your heart cannot pump well, your body tries to make up for it. Your body holds on to salt and water. Hospitalization is the costliest resource in health care (24), is a landmark event in the journey of patients with HF, and is independently associated with worse outco ED decisions to avoid unnecessary hospitalization assume the ability to appropriately discriminate risk, Cited by: Presentation, Diagnosis, and Medical Management of Heart l for The Children’s Heart Failure Study Group aThe Hospital for Sick Children, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada bStollery Children’s Hospital, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada cThe Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario, University of File Size: KB.

According to the American Heart Association, most people with mild and moderate congestive heart failure can be treated. Proper medical supervision can prevent them from becoming invalids. One of the major comforts you can provide your aging parent is the ability to live at home with CHF, rather than be placed in an assisted living facility.

Salt is like a sponge, it keeps extra fluid in your body. Your heart has to work harder to pump this extra fluid. You are strongly encouraged to limit your salt intake to no more than mg each day (1 tsp. is about mg or g of sodium). Watch for hig​h sodium foods.

Heart failure (HF) is a major public health problem affecting more than five million Americans and more than 23 million patients worldwide. The epidemiology of HF is evolving. Data suggests that the incidence of HF peaked in the mids and has since declined. Survival after HF diagnosis has improved, leading to an increase in prevalence.
