Brief description of study

Seeking Oklahomans with Congestive Heart Failure who are unable to walk across a room without experiencing shortness of breath and fatigue.

Detailed Study Description

Because the most common symptoms of heart failure are also normal signs of aging, such as shortness of breath and fatigue, many people with heart failure are not aware that they have it.

Heart failure is a condition that develops slowly as the heart muscle weakens and is forced to work harder to keep blood flowing through the body. Reasons for development of heart failure include injury to the heart, uncontrolled high blood pressure, or an abnormality of the heart valves.

Heart failure is most often recognized when it has advanced to the stage of congestive heart failure. At this point, fluid may leak into the lungs, feet, legs, and in some cases the liver or abdominal cavity.
