Congestive heart failure causes the heart to lose efficiency, reducing blood flow throughout the body. Poor heart function may be due to a variety of causes, including coronary artery disease, chronic high blood pressure, or a recent heart attack.
This video discusses some of the symptoms associated with congestive heart failure, as well as the heart conditions that cause heart failure to occur. Common symptoms of congestive heart failure include fatigue and shortness of breath, which may be brought on by physical activity or may occur even while at rest. Other symptoms can include abdominal bloating and swelling in the legs, as well as rapid weight gain.
