So what are the characteristics of heart failure?

Everyday you want to prevent heart failure, you can first understand the relevant knowledge about heart failure.

Characteristics of chronic left heart failure General signs: rapid pulse, alternating pulse; prolonged pulse pressure, even lower blood pressure; shallow breathing; patients are forced to take a semi-sitting position or a sitting position.

Skin mucous membranes are pale or blemishes.

Cardiac signs: apex beat left shift; heart rate increased, apical region diastolic galloping; pulmonary heart auscultation area second heart sound hyperthyroidism.

Pulmonary signs: Symmetrical fine wet voices on both sides of the lung are the most important features.

Paroxysmal nocturnal dyspnea or acute pulmonary edema may have a coarse wet voice, full of two lungs, may be accompanied by breath sounds.

Characteristics of chronic right heart failure Jugular vein sign: enhanced jugular vein beat, filling, anger, is the main sign of early heart failure, suggesting increased systemic venous pressure.

Positive signs of hepatic jugular venous return are characteristic.

Liver signs: The liver is often increased by congestion, with tenderness.

Sustained chronic right heart failure can cause cardiogenic cirrhosis, and liver function damage, jaundice and massive ascites can occur in the advanced stage.

Edema: Early edema is not obvious, and it usually occurs after the jugular vein is filled and the liver is more obvious.

Its characteristics are that the lowest hanging part of the body appears for the first time, showing symmetry and indentation, and the severe one can extend to the whole body.

Pleural effusion is more common in heart failure, caused by increased body pressure, more common on both sides.

Bun: long-term severe right heart failure can occur cyanosis, due to insufficient blood supply to the tissue, excessive blood oxygenation, venous hypoxia, usually in the extremities or sagging part of the limb.

Cardiac signs: Reflux murmurs with tricuspid regurgitation.

The characteristic features of acute left heart failure are cardiac signs: the first heart sound of the apex is weakened, the heart rate is fast, and there is a diastolic early galloping, and the second heart sound of the pulmonary valve is hyperthyroidism.

Pulmonary signs: Both lungs are covered with wet voices and humming sounds.
