Recently, a friend of mine always felt that he was short of Qi and blood. He always feels uncomfortable. We friends are worried about him. We suggest that he go to the hospital for a comprehensive examination. After his detailed examination, the doctor diagnosed congestive heart failure. Today I'm going to talk about the symptoms of congestive heart failure.

What are the symptoms of congestive heart failure

First: long term gastrointestinal congestion, can cause loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, abdominal distension, constipation and upper abdominal pain symptoms, individual cases of severe right heart failure, may occur deproteinized bowel disease. Renal symptoms: renal congestion causes renal dysfunction, and nocturia may increase. Most patients' urine contains a small amount of protein, a small number of transparent or granular tubular and a small number of red blood cells. Plasma urea nitrogen may increase. After heart failure is corrected, the above changes can return to normal.

Second: it is mainly related to the simultaneous rise of systemic venous pressure and pulmonary venous pressure and the increase of pleural capillary permeability. It mostly occurs in the left and right sides of the chest at the same time. The right side of the chest often has a large amount of pleural fluid, and unilateral pleural effusion is also more common in the right side. A few patients with pleural effusion are caused by simple left heart failure or right heart failure. Pleural effusion can induce or aggravate dyspnea.

Third: cyanosis in patients with right heart failure is more significant than that in patients with left heart failure, but dyspnea is less severe. Cyanosis in patients with simple right heart failure is mostly peripheral, appearing in the drooping part of the limbs and the surrounding parts of the body. Cyanosis in patients with total heart failure is mixed, that is, central cyanosis coexists with peripheral cyanosis. Objective: in severe and persistent cases of right heart failure, there may be abnormal amount of fluid leakage in the pericardium, resulting in pericardial effusion.
