Can You Survive With Cpr And Then Hours Later Die Of Heart Failure
Broadly speaking, cardioplumonary resuscitation (cpr), is the act of compressing the heart in an effort to create blood flow. This is typically performed as "external" or "closed chest" cpr, as taught by the america heart association.

If a has 2 heart attacks before a year & now cardiomegaly & lungs filled with fluid means symptoms of conngestive heart failure. Will he survive?
It depends: Heart attacks can lead to congestive heart failure because of a loss of heart muscle. This can result in a decrease in the squeezing function of the heart. This is turn can lead to fluid building up in the lungs causing shortness of breath. Heart failure can be treated with appropriate medications and diet restrictions. Your cardiologist would be in a better position to give you an assessment. ...Read more
Heart failure is a complex set of conditions in which the heart "fails" to pump a normal amount of blood with each beat. This can be due to poor squeezing function (systolic heart failure) and/or a stiff heart incapable of filling normally (diastolic heart failure). Common symptoms include swelling and trouble breathing, particularly when ...Read more
