Understanding Heart Failure

Heart failure is not a surrender of the heart but rather a disruption in its rhythm and function. It occurs when the heart is unable to pump blood efficiently, leading to an inadequate supply of oxygen and nutrients to the body’s organs and tissues. While it may sound ominous, understanding heart failure is the first step towards effective management and treatment.

Heart Failure Awareness Week: A Timely Beacon of Knowledge

From February 11 to February 17, Heart Failure Awareness Week takes center stage. It’s a time to disseminate information, dispel myths, and foster a compassionate understanding of heart failure. Awareness not only empowers individuals to recognize potential symptoms but also encourages proactive steps towards heart health.

Symptoms: The Heart’s Whisper

Recognizing the subtle whispers of heart failure is essential. Shortness of breath, persistent coughing or wheezing, fatigue, and swelling in the legs, ankles, or abdomen are common indicators. However, symptoms can vary, and early detection plays a pivotal role in managing heart failure effectively.
