Congestive heart failure is a chronic progressive condition which affects the pumping power of the heart muscle. It is the stage where fluids build up around the heart and leads to inefficient pumping of blood to various organs of the body. Heart has four chambers; the upper half of the heart has two atria and the lower half of the heart has two ventricles. The ventricles pump blood to our body organs and tissues and the atria receives blood as it circulates back from the rest of the body. Insufficient supply of blood from the ventricles, to the organs in the body, leads to congestive heart failure. Of the four different classes of congestive heart failure, in class I and II, the individuals do not experience any major symptoms, and the problem of congestive heart failure can be controlled by making lifestyle changes, meditation and exercise. However, in the class III and IV stages, the patient’s condition is severe and the problem can only be controlled through proper treatment. There are many symptoms of congestive heart failure including irregular heartbeat, fatigue, shortness of breath, edema, chest pain, wheezing, fainting and weight gain.
