Heart failure does not mean the heart has stopped working. Rather, it means that the heart’s pumping power is weaker than normal. With heart failure, blood moves through the heart and body at a slower rate, and pressure in the heart increases. As a result, the heart cannot pump enough oxygen and nutrients to meet the body’s needs. The chambers of the heart may respond by stretching to hold more blood to pump through the body or by becoming stiff and thickened. This helps to keep the blood moving, but the heart muscle walls may eventually weaken and become unable to pump as efficiently. As a result, the kidneys may respond by causing the body to retain fluid (water) and salt. If fluid builds up in the arms, legs, ankles, feet, lungs, or other organs, the body becomes congested, and congestive heart failure is the term used to describe the condition.
Congestive heart failure (CHF) is a condition in which the heart’s function as a pump is inadequate to meet the body’s needs. Many disease processes can impair the pumping efficiency of the heart to cause congestive heart failure.
The symptoms of congestive heart failure vary, but can include:
- diminished exercise capacity;
- shortness of breath, and swelling (edema).
The diagnosis of congestive heart failure is based on knowledge of the individual’s medical history, a careful physical examination, and selected laboratory tests.
The treatment of congestive heart failure can include lifestyle modifications, addressing potentially reversible factors, medications, heart transplant, and mechanical therapies.
Cialis is used to treat erection dysfunction in men. It is also used for enlargement of the prostate gland in men, a condition called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH. This medicine improves urine flow and reduces BPH symptoms. This medicine can also treat both erection problems and BPH when they occur together. Cialis is contraindicated in such health conditions like: alcohol intoxication, pigmentary retinopathy, eye disease caused by blood flow problems, restrictive cardiomyopathy, hearing loss, severe uncontrolled high blood pressure, unpredictable severe constricting chest pain, narrowing of the aortic heart valve, idiopathic hypertrophic subaortic stenosis, life-threatening irregular heart rhythm, chronic heart failure, stroke, abnormally low blood pressure, acute peptic ulcer, liver problems, serious kidney problems, continued painful erection, Peyronie’s disease, bent penis on erection, fibrous tissue formation in the penis, seizures, multiple myeloma, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, severe insufficiency of the autonomic nervous system, blood clotting disorder, increased risk of bleeding.
Cialis is contraindicated for patients with a known hypersensitivity to Tadalafil or any component of the tablet. Administration of Cialis to patients who are using any form of organic nitrate, either regularly and/ or intermittently, is contraindicated.
