What Causes Heart Conjested Failer
Palpitations: You are having palpitations, which can be caused by many things, including thyroid issues, anxiety, arrhythmias, caffeine, hypoglycemia, among many other things. You need to be evaluated both with blood tests and possibly with a 24 hour monitor called a holter monitor to see what the heart is doing during these episodes from an electrical standpoint. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Heart failure: In a healthy heart, during each heartbeat a set amount of blood enters the heart and is pumped out again. In heart failure, your heart cannot cope with pumping the full amount of blood in each heartbeat. Systolic heart failure- the ventricles of the heart do not contract properly during each heartbeat so blood is not adequately pumped out of the heart.Diastolic heart failure. This occurs when the ventricle does not fill up with blood enough ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Multiple causes: Dyspnea is difficult breathing. Ms causes this in multiple ways. Increased lung water (back up into the lungs.) dilated left atrium compressing the left main stem bronchus. Decreased cardiac output (and o2 delivery) leading to a sensation of needing to breathe harder. Atrial arrhythmias leading to decreased cardiac output and increased water in the lungs. Each person has variable contribution. ...Read more
Depends on severity: If severe, mitral stenosis can cause pulmonary edema or fluid buildup in the lung tissue and air spaces as a result of increasing left atrial pressure and pulmonary venous congestion. This may led to shortness of breath as well as crackles on exam. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Valve: 'Leaking' heart valves are valves with don't close properly. There are various causes of this problem. It can be inherited or acquired. Acquired types include infections and heart damage from inflammatory and ischemic and toxic processes.

CHF: is exactly what is says it is. You usually have congestion in the chest caused by blood/fluid backing up in your lung. And that is because the patient has a failing heart - either because it has a very weak muscle like in systolic heart failure when the ejection fraction is less than 45% or a very stiff ventricle like in diastolic heart failure when the ventricle cant relax enough ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Congestive heart fai: CHF is a symptom complex. Many cardiac problems can cause chf. Generally loss of exercise capacity, shortness of breath, fatigue and sometimes peripheral swelling we call edema is present. CHF can be right sided, left sided or biventricular. It can be caused by systolic, diastolic or valvar problems. It affects the whole body and all its systems. ...Read more
Born with vs acquire: Leaky heart valves occur congenitally when some aspect of the valve leaflets/annulus/supporting structures is abnormal at birth. They can also be acquired as a result of changes in the heart structure/valve structure/aorta/lungs over time. Heart attacks can damage valves, as can infectious endocarditis, cardiomyopathy, enlarging aortic root, pulmonary disease causing pulmonary hypertension. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Multiple causes.: Stress, stretch, calcium deposition and degeneration all are factors that lead to disease in heart valves. Recurrent inflammation, rheumatic heart disease, infection on the valves themselves is other reasons. Heart conditions and other disorders, age-related changes, rheumatic fever, and infections can cause acquired heart valve disease. These factors change the shape or flexibility of once-normal. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
