Heart failure (HF) is generally defined as inability of the heart to supply

sufficient blood flow to meet the body's needs. It has various diagnostic criteria,
and the term á  is often incorrectly used to describe other cardiac-
related illnesses, such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) or cardiac arrest.

Common causes of heart failure include myocardial infarction (heart attacks) and
other forms of ischemic heart disease, hypertension,valvular heart disease,
and cardiomyopathy. Heart failure can cause a number of symptoms
including shortness of breath (typically worse when lying flat, which is
called orthopnea), coughing, chronic venous congestion, ankle swelling,
and exercise intolerance. Heart failure is often undiagnosed due to a lack of a
universally agreed definition and challenges in definitive diagnosis. Treatment
commonly consists of lifestyle measures (such as decreased salt intake) and
medications, and sometimes devices or even surgery.

Heart failure is a common, costly, disabling, and potentially deadly

condition. In developing countries, around 2% of adults suffer from heart failure,
but in those over the age of 65, this increases to 6±10%.

èackward failure of the right ventricle leads to congestion of systemic
capillaries. This generates excess fluid accumulation in the body. This causes
swelling under the skin (termed peripheral edema or anasarca) and usually
affects the dependent parts of the body first (causing foot and ankle swelling in
people who are standing up, and sacral edema in people who are predominantly
lying down). Nocturia (frequent nighttime urination) may occur when fluid from
the legs is returned to the bloodstream while lying down at night. In progressively
severe cases, ascites (fluid accumulation in the abdominal cavity causing
swelling) and hepatomegaly (enlargement of the liver) may develop. Significant
liver congestion may result in impaired liver function, and jaundice and
even coagulopathy (problems of decreased blood clotting) may occur.

The objective of the study is to give quality-nursing care to assigned
patient and impart knowledge based on the nursing process and critical thinking
skills. This care study aims to guide the student nurses in providing client-
centered nursing care while applying critical thinking in all phases of nursing care
from assessment to evaluation.

This study is directed towards health maintenance and rehabilitation. èy

utilizing the skills and knowledge, the client is being protected from any
complications and potential severity of the disease condition. Thereby, rendering
proper interventions and nursing actions could certainly alleviate the client¶s
health problem.

| |!|" #  !|| ||

The primary concern of the study is health maintenance and detection of

actual and potential health problem that prevent the disease of the patient.

Nevertheless, the client¶s history of present illness including family history

is being scrutinized to detect any possible health problem or knowledge deficit
regarding family care.

Moreover, information and details regarding the patient¶s disease such as

pathophysiology, precipitating and predisposing factors, clinical
manifestations/signs and symptoms are being considered before intervening with
the client¶s condition. Nonetheless, health teachings are given to client as part of
the discharge plan. Proper nursing intervention and health teachings are given to
be able to provide quality-nursing care. Furthermore, the limitation of the study
lies on the time given to do study.

The heart is a hallow organ, positioned left of the center in the chest cavity within
the pericardial cavity. The base of the heart is located superiorly, and the apex is
directed downward and leftward and formed by the lateral tip of the left ventricle.

"|+"9|$0$|$%|$% |
Unoxygenated blood from the venous system empties into the right atrium via the
superior and inferior vena cava coronary sinus. When sufficient amount of blood
fills the atrium, blood begins to flow from the right atrium through the tricuspid
valve into the right ventricle. When sufficient amount of blood fills the right
ventricle, the tricuspid valve closes, creating high pressure in the right ventricle.
The ventricle contracts and forces blood and through the pulmonary artery via
the pulmonic valve. At the lungs, oxygen is acquired and oxygenated blood is
transported to the left atrium via the pulmonary veins. As blood fills the left
atrium, blood begins to pour into the left ventricle through the mitral valve closes
tightly, creating strong pressure in the left ventricle. The left ventricle contracts
and opens the aortic valve sending blood to the systemic circulation via the aorta.

When blood flow through the renal artery is decreased, the baroreceptor reflex is
stimulated and rennin is released into the bloodstream. Renin interacts with
angiotensinogen to produce angiotensi I. When angiotensin I contacts ACE, it is
converted to angiotensin II, a potent vasoconstrictor. Angiotensin II increases arterial
vasoconstriction, promote release of norepinephrine from sympathetic nerve endings,
and stimulates the adrenal medulla to secrete aldosterone, which enhances sodium
and water absorption. Stimulation of the rennin-angiotensin system causes plasma
volume to expand and preload to increase.

In ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis develops in the coronary arteries, causing
them to become narrowed or blocked. When a coronary artery is blocked, blood flow
to the area of the heart supplied by that artery is reduced. If the remaining blood flow
is inadequate to meet the oxygen demands of the heart, the area may become
ischemic and injured and myocardial infarction may result. Neural pain receptors are
stimulated by local mechanical stress resulting from abnormal myocardial contraction.
