Help When You Need It
The heart failure clinic at Brookhaven Heart offers the care you need for serious and immediate issues. Our physicians use x-rays, electrocardiograms, echocardiograms, stress tests and other diagnostic methods to identify congestive heart failure and offer comprehensive, effective treatment at our state-of-the-art heart failure clinic.
What is Congestive Heart Failure?
Contrary to common belief, congestive heart failure (CHF) does not mean that the heart stops beating entirely. In patients suffering from CHF, the heart grows too weak to pump effectively, leading to slower blood flow from the heart to the rest of the body. The slowdown in blood movement raises the pressure within the heart.
If CHF goes untreated, the kidneys start to retain salt and water, causing fluid to build up in the extremities and other organs. The condition’s name, congestive heart failure, derives directly from the congestion resulting from limited blood flow and fluid buildup.
Symptoms of CHF
Any damage to the heart can trigger CHF. If you suspect you might have CHF, we encourage you to seek professional help at a heart failure clinic as soon as possible. Visible symptoms of CHF include:
- Shortness of breath upon exertion
- A dry cough, wheezing or hacking
- Swelling in the abdomen, legs, and ankles
- Lightheadedness or fatigue
- Irregular heartbeat
Fluid buildup in the abdomen as a result of CHF can also cause nausea or an increased need to urinate at night.

Our staff works directly with physicians to ensure that long-term heart failure management and care are available to every patient.

Congestive heart failure is a condition wherein the heart’s function as a pump is not strong enough to deliver oxygen-filled blood throughout the body. Failure is often caused by diseases that weaken or stiffen the heart muscles. All treatments are processes that do not deliver immediate results. However, at Brookhaven Heart, we make treatment easier than ever before. Our primary goal is to educate our patients. To that end, we make our treatment program intuitive and built around you, the patient.
