馃挕 There are many causes of shortness of breath and leg swelling, but heart failure occupies a central place due to its frequency in adulthood and its association with multiple pathologies. What is heart failure? In simple terms, it's the heart's inability to efficiently pump blood. Diseases that damage the heart muscle or its valves can lead to the heart not functioning properly and failing, such as in the case of a heart attack or long-term untreated high blood pressure. What does this produce or what signs does it give? Basically, fluid retention 馃挦, where the fluid contained in the blood accumulates in the lungs, presenting as shortness of breath, and then in the abdomen and legs, resulting in edema or swelling (see image). It's important to consult your cardiologist for a detailed clinical evaluation 馃┖ along with a 12-lead electrocardiogram and an echocardiogram (cardiac ultrasound) to assess the heart's structure. All this information forms the basic necessary data to indicate appropriate treatment 馃拪.
