Congestive heart failure is a condition in which the heart muscle weakens and cannot properly pump blood throughout the body. Because there is not sufficient blood flow in the body, and depending on which part of the heart is diseased, health complications may arise, including fluid build-up in the lungs, feet and elsewhere.
Heart failure is a progressive disease, and early detection is essential to managing the disease. Wesley offers a variety of heart screening and imaging tools in Wichita to diagnose the disease in its earliest stages.
