Ask the Doctor: Heart Failure Symptoms

Posted: Updated:

Heart failure does not mean the heart has stopped working, but instead it may be working less efficiently to meet the needs of the body. With heart failure, blood may move through the heart and body at a slower rate and your blood pressure may increase.

There are a host of symptoms including shortness of breath, persistent coughing, a lack of appetite dizziness or fatigue. According to the American Heart Association, these are common symptoms of heart failure.

In tonight's Ask the Doctor, if you have a question about heart failure or basic heart health, you can speak with cardiologist Dr. Thomas To with Renown Institute for Heart & Vascular Health. Call (775) 858-2222 between 5 - 6:00 p.m. Or you can call the Renown Institute for Heart & Vascular Health during business hours at (775) 982-2400.
