The heart is one of the most vital organs on the body which pumps out oxygen-rich blood to all parts of the body working 24*7. A heart failure occurs when the heart is unable to pump out blood like it usually does with blood and fluid getting accumulated in the lungs leading to congestive heart failure. Many parts of the body do not get enough oxygen-rich blood to work normally leading to symptoms of heart failure. If your heart symptoms suddenly get even worse it is best you seek emergency care.

Some of the symptoms that you may experience may be the following

• Fatigue, weakness or dizziness

• Heart palpitations

• Shortness of breath

• Swollen legs and ankles

• Sudden Weight gain

After a heart failure, it is pertinent that you take the necessary precautions that may not reoccur. Here are some tips that you can follow

• Make sure you make lifestyle changes first by adapting to a low sodium diet, have a proper exercise routine and quit smoking.

• Make sure you maintain weight and monitor symptoms.

• Take proper Medications and go for Pre-heart- transplant evaluation and care.

• Make sure you consult your doctor for CABG; LVAD which can improve blood flow to your heart and pump more blood.
