Summary about Heart Failure in English

Heart failure is the term used for the condition when heart muscles fail to pump efficiently. Heart failure does not mean that the heart has stopped beating but it is more associated with the ability of the heart to pump efficiently. Narrowing of coronary arteries and diseases like hypertension leave heart muscles weak and stiff eventually leading to heart failure. Treatment and lifestyle changes can help to improve the quality of life for affected patients. Making exercise a habit and restricting sodium intake can be beneficial for increasing life span of heart failure affected persons. Regular evaluation from a cardiologist is essential for heart patients. To find and consult the best cardiologists in Pakistan log on to marham.pk.
