Heart failure


Specialty of Cardiology

Heart failure occurs when there is a blockage in the blood circulation. This blockage may be located within the heart muscle or outside, causing an increase in blood pressure. There are two types of heart failure: systolic when the heart muscle cannot pump blood out of the heart and diastolic, which is when the heart muscles are stiff and do not fill with blood. Both are treatable. Firstly, the patient should avoid any effort that overloads the heart, and then, he/she should take the medications that provide vitality to the exhausted heart muscle. If the blockage is within the coronary arteries it is known as coronary insufficiency.
