What is Congestive Heart Failure?
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) is a condition in which the heart is unable to pump enough oxygen-rich blood to meet the needs of the body's other organs. The heart pumps much more inefficiently than a healthy heart and, as the heart's pumping action weakens, blood backs up into lungs and other tissues. The body retains more fluid than usual, resulting in swelling of the ankles and legs. The symptoms can vary depending on how much of the heart's pumping capacity has been affected, but these are the major ones: shortness of breath during rest, exercise, or while lying flat; weight gain; visible swelling of the legs and ankles; fatigue and weakness; loss of appetite; nausea and abdominal pain; and persistent cough.
