How Common Is Heart Failure With Sepsis
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
After a sepsis death, that results in a heart failure, if needed can sepsis be found or confirmed from Histology sample blocks of the heart. Thank you?
May be: Sepsis is a broad category and changes in the heart alone may not be diagnostic. If the person and infection of the heart, e.g., endocarditis, that would support the diagnosis of sepsis. However, sepsis by definition is a multi-system disease and would require examination of multiple organs.

Multiple organs: It is not a conventional medical term, however, from what you described, it suggests that multiple organs are not functioning normally. It is not an uncommon complication of sepsis.

PPCM: Postpartum cardiomyopathy (ppcm) is heart failure secondary to left ventricular systolic dysfunction toward the end of pregnancy or in the months after delivery, in the absence of any other cause of heart failure. Ppcm is a diagnosis of exclusion. Retained placenta is not a cause.See 1 more doctor answer
Poor heart pumping: Pericarditis, by preventing the heart from moving properly, may result in worsening heart failure. This can be corrected by relieving fluid accumulation or, in some cases, by opening or removing the pericardium.
2 months old: The most common forms of chd which is ventricular septal defects, if large enough and non-restrictive would cause congestive heart failure at 1-2 months of age. There are, however, forms of critical congenital heart disease that would present with chf, cyanosis, and/or shock within hours - few days after birth.See 1 more doctor answer

I have congenital heart failure and my body is very warm to the touch and my hands are a little shaky should I go to the e.R?
CHF: I presume you mean congestive heart failure. Frequently warm hands aren't a problem but if you are short of breath and shaky, then you should get seen as soon as possible.
Physical exam: Fluid accumulates during congestive heart failure. When the right side of the heart fails, fluid accumulates in the legs and abdomen. When the left side of the heart fails, fluid accumulates in the lungs and makes the patient short of breath. Not infrequently, both sides of the heart fail at the same time.
Heart failure: Common symptoms of heart failure are shortness of breath, fatigue, lack of energy, swelling. These symptoms can be caused by other diseases too and therefore should be evaluated by a physician.
Otherwise known simply as heart failure, is a condition in which the heart muscle is weakened.
