CONGESTIVE HEART FAILURE-CURRENT RESEARCH AND TREATMENTS 2 Congestive Heart Failure-Current Research and Treatments Introduction Congestive heart failure is a serious cardiovascular disease due to the increasing prevalence, high morbidity, high mortality, and the rising cost of management. Congestive heart failure is associated with a various diverse range of complications like lethal arrhythmia, hospitalization, and mortality during disease progression. Scientists are continuously looking at the factors that are contributing to the pathogenesis of the disease and modernizing the treatment approaches. In the most extended period, a strong emphasis has always been on enhancing the survival and quality of life of the people diagnosed with congestive heart failure. The presentation aims to discuss the present research, available treatments, and strategies for reducing hospital readmissions. Definition and Diagnosis Congestive heart failure is a clinical condition characterized by unique symptoms and signs caused by functional and structural cardiac abnormalities. The most common terminology used in describing congestive heart failure presently bases the definition left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) (Choi et al., 2019). Patients with congestive heart failure with LVEF between 40% and 49% are recognized with mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF) (Choi et al., 2019). Patients experiencing chronic congestive heart failure symptoms and whose disease status does not change with 1 month are recognized as having stable congestive heart failure (Choi et al., 2019). The severity and symptoms of congestive heart failure are usually defined using the New York Heart Association (NYHA) functional classification.
