The leading cause of hospitalization in seniors is Congestive Heart Failure (CHF). CHF, also called Chronic Heart Failure, refers to a weakening of the heart that prevents it from pumping blood effectively.
CHF must be caught as early as possible. It can be treated with a variety of medications, including beta-blockers, diuretics, and ACE inhibitors. Lifestyle changes are also important; in fact, enacting diet and lifestyle changes can improve — and even reverse — CHF.
What changes make a difference? The usual suspects: managing stress management, eliminating tobacco and alcohol, restricting salt, being physically active, getting adequate sleep. While it’s easy to rattle off the list of changes that need to be made, actually making them, and making them last, is significantly more difficult.
An article published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology reports that one of the best ways to accomplish this is through cardiac rehabilitation, such as the program at Hamilton Grove Healthcare and Rehabilitation Center, in Hamilton, NJ. Cardia rehab improves clinical outcome in patients with CHF, as well as their quality of life.
