Pathophysiology of the Alterations As the lungs build up with fluid the lungs can no longer have adequate gas exchange leading to dyspnea (Colucci & Dunlay, 2017) Exercise intolerance due to increased workload of the heart Hypertension due to increased peripheral vascular resistance (Huether & McCance, 2017) Increased afterload leads to increased workload for the ventricle that causes ventricular remodeling (Huether & McCance, 2017) Decrease return blood flow to heart causing fluid build up in peripheral tissue, organs, and decreased kidney function (American Heart Association, 2017)
