CHF Management Center

If you have congestive heart failure (CHF), your heart is unable to effectively pump blood to meet your body’s needs. This may be because of heart muscle weakness, such as after a series of heart attacks; valvular disease like aortic stenosis; post viral infection; or toxic injury from alcohol. Symptoms frequently include shortness of breath- particularly while lying down- leg swelling, and awakening from sleep gasping for air. CHF is a cause for serious concern, but it can be manageable. At Anderson CHF Management Center, the outlook for patients with CHF continues to improve.
