CHF affects almost 5 million people in the United States each year, according to the American Heart Association. It is more common in older people, but can affect anyone. This results in a reduction in blood supply to the different organs in the body, and can be caused by rheumatic fever, bacterial endocarditis, anemia, cardiovascular heart disease, and any other chronic health conditions.

At Pavilion Medical Home Care and Staffing, our staff members are trained to recognize the symptoms of heart failure, which include:

  • shortness of breath on exertion or with activity
  • coughs
  • swelling of the feet, stomach area and ankles
  • tiredness
  • loss of appetite

Working in collaboration with the doctor, our experienced nursing team helps to manage the patient’s CHF through:

  • Daily weight measurement
  • Dietary restriction management
  • Medication management
  • Lifestyle modification
  • Management of co-morbid factors (obesity, hypertension, diabetes, etc.)
  • Progressive exercise
