Heart Failure Care at Lima Memorial


What is Heart Failure?

Heart failure, also referred to as congestive heart failure (CHF), affects more than five million adults in the United States. Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart cannot pump enough oxygenated blood throughout the body to other organs and tissues. Essentially, this means an individual’s heart is not keeping up with the demands of their body, whether they are at rest or exercising.

Heart failure also interferes with kidney function. Because the kidneys are unable to receive oxygen rich blood to function properly (eliminating sodium and waste), the body will retain fluid.

Heart failure is an incurable, chronic disease, but it can be managed with proper treatment. Lima Memorial’s expert Congestive Heart Failure Clinic team ensures that excellent heart failure care is provided close to home.
