Nursing Left Sided Heart Failure
Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) for Nursing & NCLEX
The left ventricle of the heart no longer pumps enough blood around the body. As a result, blood builds up in the pulmonary veins (the blood vessels that carry blood away from the lungs). This causes shortness of breath, trouble breathing or coughing – especially during physical activity.
