Heart ailments leading cause of mortality
On the occasion of World Heart Day, observed on September 29, experts across the country are urging people to pay more attention to the early signs and symptoms that are indicative of an underlying heart disease, to ensure early diagnosis. Heart ailments are the leading cause of mortality, in India, due to key challenges in cardiac care like inadequate facilities, inaccessibility and lack of awareness. Latest statistics suggest that cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) account for more than half of the mortality of the 6 million deaths due to non-communicable diseases. Dr. Shirish (M S.) Hiremath, President,  Cardiological Society of lndia. said, “With the burden of Heart Failure snowballing in India and the associated high death rates, it is necessary to prioritize heart failure as a cardiovascular disease. The need of the hour is, coming together of all stakeholders to develop a community-level approach to raise awareness about this condition, which is often used interchangeably with Heart Attack or seen as an aftermath of the latter."

What is heart failure?
Experts clarify that ‘Heart Failure’ means that the weakened heart muscle is not pumping blood efficiently enough to meet the oxygen and nutritional demands of an individual‘s body. Risk factors for heart failure include a history of coronary artery disease (CAD), heart attack, high blood pressure, heart valve disease, cardiomyopathy, lung disease, diabetes, obesity, alcohol and drug use and family history of heart diseases. Common symptoms include shortness of breath, tiredness, swelling in the ankles, legs and abdomen. etc.

Heart Failure in India: Early Diagnosis and Public Awareness is Need of an Hour
Dr. MS Hiremath, Director Cathlab Ruby Hall highlights the growing incidence of heart failure in India, especially amongst the younger population and emphasizes on increasing public awareness about this condition in India. Heart failure, sometimes known as congestive heart failure, occurs when your heart muscle doesn't pump blood as well as it should. Certain conditions, such as narrowed arteries in your heart (coronary artery disease) or high blood pressure, gradually leave your heart too weak or stiff to fill and pump efficiently.

Dr. Shirish Hiremath feels that there is need for early diagnosis and treatment to arrest the progression of this devastating condition specially because of changing lifestyles amongst young. One way to prevent heart failure is to control conditions that cause heart failure, such as coronary artery disease, high blood pressure, diabetes or obesity.

Heart failure signs and symptoms may include:
  • Shortness of breath (dyspnea) when you exert yourself or when you lie down
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Swelling (edema) in your legs, ankles and feet
  • Rapid or irregular heartbeat
  • Reduced ability to exercise
  • Persistent cough or wheezing with white or pink blood-tinged phlegm
  • Increased need to urinate at night
  • Swelling of your abdomen (ascites)
  • Sudden weight gain from fluid retention
  • Lack of appetite and nausea
  • Difficulty concentrating or decreased alertness
  • Sudden, severe shortness of breath and coughing up pink, foamy mucus
  • Chest pain if your heart failure is caused by a heart attack

Heart failure quite prevalent: Dr Hiremath
Heart failure causes two-three times as many deaths as advanced cancers like breast and bowel cancer said Dr Shirish Hiremath, noted cardiologist from the city. He was speaking to mark the May month as the "Heart Failure Awareness Month'.
"There is a lot of ambiguity around heart failure. Most patients either don't understand the condition at all or simply confuse it with a heart attack, which is a pity, as the statistics suggest that heart failure is quite prevalent and is fast evolving into a non-communicable disease of almost epidemic proportions. Since heart failure is a progressive disease, it can easily turn into a costly and potentially fatal condition, if not controlled in time," said Dr. Hiremath.
