Heart Failure - The Bad and The Ugly
The human heart is the organ responsible for pumping blood through the circulatory system, supplying oxygen and nutrients to other parts of the body.
The heart could fail or cease to perform this function for a number of reasons, and a steady occurrence has been noted in Nigerians 20 years younger than nationals of other countries.
During a Novartis supportedHeart failure awareness event on the 24th of November, Consultant Cardiologist, Dr. OkechukwuOgah described heart failure as a condition that occurs when the heart is unable to effectively pump blood, which is its primary function.

He warned media representatives present that a failure to control high blood pressure could lead to a heart attack. Dr. OkechukwuOgah mentioned that several conditions could lead to heart failure including: heart muscle disease, cardiomyopathy and rheumatic heart disease among others.
He advised all present, to visit the hospital for regular medical check-ups as sufferers of this condition are usually ignorant of the signs and symptoms of heart failure.
The Heart Failure awareness event was organized in a bid to sensitise the public on the dangers of heart failure, its impact on the lives of sufferers and it effect on the economy.
