Heart Failure: Overview

Modified on 2009/10/14 21:39 by admin
Heart failure is a condition which may be caused by a wide variety of heart related ailments. The heart of a person who has been diagnosed with heart failure simply cannot pump blood in sufficient volume to satisfy the body's oxygen requirements. As the name suggests, the underlying condition (infection of the heart, coronary artery disease, diabetes, heart valve defect, high blood pressure, emphysema and others) weakens the heart muscle causing it to slowly deteriorate until it is unable to meet the body's requirements. While this degenerative disease rarely causes sudden death, most people who suffer from heart failure die within ten years.

If you suffer from heart failure due to your use of a defective product or due to a lifetime of working in a hazardous environment, it may be important to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
