What are the 4 types of heart failure?

What are the different types of heart failure?

  • Left-sided heart failure. Left-sided heart failure is the most common type of heart failure.
  • Right-sided heart failure. The right heart ventricle is responsible for pumping blood to your lungs to collect oxygen.
  • Diastolic heart failure.
  • Systolic heart failure.

What are 3 of the 5 most common types of heart disease?

5 Most Common Heart Diseases

  1. Congenital Heart Disease. Congenital heart disease is a birth defect that could range from a small hole in the heart to something more severe.
  2. Coronary Artery Disease (CAD)
  3. Heart Arrhythmia.
  4. Dilated Cardiomyopathy.
  5. Pulmonary Stenosis.

What is Grade 4 heart failure?

IV. Unable to carry on any physical activity without discomfort. Symptoms of heart failure at rest. If any physical activity is undertaken, discomfort increases. Class.

What is the most common type of heart failure?

Left-sided heart failure is the most common type. Right-sided heart failure: Here the right ventricle of the heart is too weak to pump enough blood to the lungs.

What are the 2 types of heart failure?

There are two kinds of left-sided heart failure:

  • Systolic heart failure occurs when the left ventricle fails to contract normally. This reduces the level of force available to push blood into circulation.
  • Diastolic failure, or diastolic dysfunction, happens when the muscle in the left ventricle becomes stiff.

What are the three types of heart failure?

Types of Heart Failure

  • Right-sided heart failure. (Back-ups in the area that collects “used” blood)
  • Left-sided heart failure. (Failure to properly pump out blood to the body)
  • Congestive heart failure. (Fluid backs up into the lungs and tissues)

How are the different types of heart failure classified?

There are different types of heart failure and they are classified by specific characteristics including symptoms and functional limitations (how it affects you). Your provider will ask you questions and use different tests to identify the type of heart failure you have before starting a treatment plan. 1

What kind of medication is used for heart failure?

The type of medication people use for the treatment of heart failure will depend on the type of heart failure they have. Heart failure often only affects the left or right side of the heart, but can affect both.

What are the different types of left sided heart failure?

In left-sided or left ventricular (LV) heart failure, the left side of the heart must work harder to pump the same amount of blood. There are two types of left-sided heart failure.

What are the normal numbers for heart failure?

Normal numbers are measured as something called Ejection Fraction (Often referred to as an EF). A normal ejection fraction (EF) is between 55% and 75%; most people in heart failure have ejection fractions under 40%, but a person with left diastolic function can have a normal EF.
