Congestive Cardiomyopathy complications
Congestive Cardiomyopathy

  • Congestive heart failure is a chronic condition that affects the four chambers of the heart. Early symptoms include fatigue and weight gain. Irregular heart beat and wheezing indicate a worsening.
  • Pulmonary edema is a condition in which the lungs fill with fluid. When this occurs, the body struggles to get enough oxygen, often resulting in breathlessness, coughing, excessive sweating, and bluish skin or lips.
  • Cyanosis refers to a bluish cast to the skin and mucous membranes, like inside the mouth or the lips.
  • An arrhythmia occurs when electrical impulses, which direct and regulate heartbeats, don't function properly. Heart arrhythmias are common and usually harmless.
  • An abnormal heart rhythm (arrhythmia) is a change in the heart's beating pattern. There are many different types with different causes and effects. Possible symptoms are feeling faint, chest pain, and sweating.
