In brief: Edema,sob,weakness
Although, this could be caused by other diseases, CHF is the first thing that should come to your mind if you have a patient with increasing leg edema and shortness of breath and crackles in the lungs with congested neck veins.
These patients need prompt medical attention including diuresis, salt and fluid restriction, and work up for the reason for the development of chf.

In brief: Do your homework
The site is not designed to be a shortcut to answer your homework.
You need to read through your nursing texts, assimilate the information and come up with a list reflecting the jargon of your texts.Anything off the site will not fit your instructors requirements & they will know you took a shortcut.
