Identifying, Treating, And Preventing Heart Failure

By Clip Syndicate
Matt and Heather talk to Heart Failure Clinic Coordinator Noah Schroeder, RN from Carle about heart failure. Heart failure is not the same thing as a heart attack. Heart failure is blocked arteries that can lead to heart attacks. Some causes of heart failure include history of blockages in the heart, high blood pressure, irregular or fast heart rates, hereditary conditions, alcoholism, and more. Heart failure gets worse if it is not treated. Symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath, a tired or run-down feeling, coughing, wheezing, fluid buildup, swelling, inability to tolerate lying flat to sleep, confusion, or unclear thinking. Some lifestyle changes that can help people with heart failure feel better and enjoy life more are to get blood pressure under control, become more active, and follow a low-sodium diet. Carle is sponsoring Heart Healthy Cooking events on the first Thursday of the month. These events are free to the public and take place from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm at Harvest Market in Champaign. Reservations are required for the events. Go to GoHarvestMarket.com or call (217) 904-7063 to make a reservation for the free Heart Healthy Cooking class.
