Overview

Conditions that can be associated with the development of heart failure includes: chronic heart disease, a prior heart attack, uncontrolled high blood pressure, abnormal heart valves, congenital heart disease (heart defects present at birth) and heart muscle disease.

Conditions

Example: “Hypertensions” or “Shortness of breath”

  • Atherosclerosis

    This is a medical condition when plaque builds up in the arteries that supply blood to the heart. As plaque continues to accumulate, it causes arteries to narrow over time.

  • High Blood Pressure

    High blood pressure is also known as hypertension. This condition happens when your blood pressure is higher than normal which eventually leads to cardiovascular diseases.

  • Heart Attack

    A heart attack is also known as myocardial infarction. It happens when a part of the heart muscle doesn’t get enough blood. Immediate treatment is needed to restore blood flow or the heart muscle will experience greater damage.

  • Ischemic Heart Disease

    Ischemic heart disease is a condition of recurring chest pain or discomfort that occurs when a part of the heart does not receive enough blood. This condition occurs most often during exertion or excitement, when the heart requires greater blood flow.

  • High Cholesterol

    A condition when there is too much cholesterol in the blood, which is usually caused by eating fatty food, lack of exercise, excessive smoking or alcohol consumption. It can also run in families.

Procedures

Example: “Stenting” or “ECG”

  • Non-invasive Cardiac Investigations

    Non-invasive procedures such as ECG to measure the health of your heart.

  • Right Heart Study

    Also called the right heart catheterization, it is an invasive test to determine how well the heart pumps.

  • Insertion of Intra-aortic Balloon Pump (IABP)

    A temporary procedure that inserts balloon-tipped catheter into a blood vessel and pushing it to the heart.

  • Pericardiocentesis

    Procedure to remove fluid accumulated in the pericardium, a sac around the heart.

  • Echocardiography/Electrocardiogram (ECG)

    An ECG is a simple test to examine the heart's rhythm and electrical activity.
