Chronic heart failure - health and social problem
KeywordsChronic heart failure, health, social problem
AbstractAdmission Chronic heart failure is a disease entity with a steadily increasing maturity, and the cost of treating patients with this disease is constantly growing. Over the last decade there has been very significant progress concerning knowledge about this disease. Current diagnosis and treatment can help to inhibit disease development, extending the life and improving its quality. Chronic heart failure is an important medical problem and socio-economic development of modern Europe. The incidence of PNS European population is estimated at 0.4 - 2%, which is approx. 6.5 - 10 million Europeans. Aim The aim of the study is to analyze chronic heart failure as a social and health problem. Material and methods A review of available literature. Results Normally heart failure is divided into left ventricular and right ventricular depending on the defective cell.Quite often distinguished by heart failure, systolic and diastolic. Heart failure can occur as acute or chronic depending on the speed of its development.Some patients with chronic heart failure is observed malnutrition characterized by loss of muscle mass. In this context, it seems important to use a method of establishing the composition of the body, including the state of hydration and nutrition in order to monitor any changes. Additional factors affecting the nutritional status of the drug treatment often cause loss of appetite or side effects in the form of gastro - intestinal disorders. Conclusions Heart failure is a serious disease with a poor prognosis for the patient. Results of European and American studies show that mortality in patients with CHF is greater than in the case of breast and prostate cancer. It is worth noting that as many as half of patients with severe heart failure die within a year.
