What is Heart Failure?

It is a long-term condition in which the heart does not pump blood as efficiently as it should. Heart failure can occur when the heart cannot adequately pump (systole) or fill (diastol). Shortness of breath, fatigue, swollen legs, and a rapid heartbeat are all symptoms. Treatment options include eating less salt, drinking less fluid, and taking prescription medication. A defibrillator or pacemaker may be implanted in some cases.

According to estimates, India has at least 1 crore heart failure sufferers

How is Heart Failure Treated?

Heart failure is a chronic disease that must be managed for the rest of one’s life. However, with treatment, heart failure symptoms and signs can improve, and the heart can sometimes become stronger.

Doctors can sometimes treat the underlying cause of heart failure and thus cure it. Repairing a heart valve or controlling a fast heart rhythm, for example, may be able to reverse heart failure. However, for the majority of people, treating heart failure entails a combination of the appropriate medications and, in some cases, the use of devices that assist the heart in beating and contracting properly.


Old age seems to be inextricably linked to heart disease, and as we get older, our hearts can't beat as fast during physical activity or stress as it once did.


Warning Signs of a Heart Attack

There is an avalanche of knowledge available at the click of a mouse button on heart health, as well as a heart attack.

Most heart attacks are characterized by pain in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes – or it may go away and then return. It may feel like pressure, squeezing, fullness, or pain. It is always suggested to speak with an expert who can correctly diagnose the pain you are experiencing.

Medica Hospital has a comprehensive diagnostic & emergency unit to support the treatment of such kinds of emergency cases. We also have specialized 24×7 ambulance services available across locations around Kolkata to bring in such patients.

Not really. Blood pressure does not accurately predict a heart attack. A heart attack can cause an increase or decrease in blood pressure, but a change in blood pressure reading does not always indicate a heart problem. Instead, consider your overall symptoms when determining the severity of a heart attack.

No, the name of this condition can be perplexing but having a heart failure doesn’t mean that your heart has stopped beating. What’s really going on is that your heart isn’t pumping blood as efficiently as it should. Your heart’s chambers may respond by stretching to carry more blood through your body.

This is no doubt a serious medical condition that needs immediate medical attention and intervention. Medica Superspecialty Hospital, Kolkata is one of Kolkata’s most premier centers for proper treatment of such kinds of cases.
