Healthline says that Heart failure or congestive heart failure is a serious illness that happens when the heart can't pump blood as well as it should. This is a medical emergency because the effects can be very bad for the body and life of the person affected.
The signs of heart failure should be caught as soon as possible. Because if you can wake up sooner, you have a much better chance of staying alive than if you pass out completely before help comes. Sit back and enjoy this article while you learn something useful.
What are the signs that your heart is getting weak?
Shortness of breath is the first sign that heart failure is coming. If you have a history of heart problems, the best thing to do in this situation is to go to the hospital right away. This is especially true if the shortness of breath comes on suddenly and isn't caused by physical activity.
2. Edema, which causes the lower limbs to swell, can be a sign of diseases of the heart that eventually lead to heart failure. Edema never happens for a good reason, so the sooner you get it checked out, the better, because it is one of the most important signs that the heart is about to fail.
A fast or irregular heartbeat is another sign that someone has heart failure. If you notice that your heart rate is suddenly getting faster and more irregular, it's best to see a doctor.
Heart failure is shown by a persistent cough that makes pink mucus that looks like blood. People whose hearts are failing often cough up pink mucus that looks like blood. You shouldn't take this for granted either if you care about your own life.
