HEART FAILURE (ADHF)
New or worsening symptoms of heart failure is called acute decompensated heart failure, or ADHF.
Heart Failure is commonly caused by dysfunction of both the nervous and the hormonal systems. This results in the heart being unable to pump enough blood to the rest of your body with each contraction.
This can lead to lungs filling with fluid.
Patients may experience fatigue, swelling in their legs, ankles and feet, or a rapid and irregular heartbeat.
