Congestive heart failure, otherwise known simply as heart failure, is a condition in which the heart muscle is weakened. It may be receiving inadequate blood flow, its valves might be malfunctioning or the heart muscle might have thickened or stiffened. As a result, the heart, which is a pump, cannot supply the body with sufficent oxygen and nutrients. When the left side of the heart is damaged, fluid builds up in the lungs, which results in difficulty breathing. When the right side of the heart is affected, fluid builds up in the extremities and abdomen, resulting in swelling of the legs and poor absorption of nutrients due to ...Read more

Fluid shifts: When a person lies flat, blood that has pooled in the legs and abdomen (from gravity) returns to the heart. The extra volume typically causes no problems for healthy persons. In pts with heart failure (chf), however, the failing heart cannot pump the extra fluid so the pressures in the chambers increase. Blood backs up into the lungs causing trouble breathing. This is relieved by sitting up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
