Treatment For Sleep Apnea Shows Promise In Reducing Deaths From Congestive Heart Failure:"The London (Ontario) Health Sciences Centre, LHSC Sleep Clinic is participating in a prestigious nationwide study led by respirologist Dr. Kathleen Ferguson.

Prognosis (Outlook):

Congestive Heart Failure Is Generally Treatable, Cardiovascular Institute of the South:"Congestive heart failure is the term used to describe the inability of the heart to pump as much blood as the body needs. Its symptoms are widespread -- weakness, shortness of breath, swelling in the legs, abdominal discomfort or pain, and a loss of appetite."

Patient Support Groups:

The Beat Goes On:"This is a moderated congestive heart failure forum. This section is for those who actually have CHF. There is another section for those whose loved one has CHF."

Reference:

Effect Of Amlodipine On Morbidity And Mortality In Severe Chronic Heart Failure:"Many calcium channel blockers have been noted to adversely affect patients with congestive heart failure and are generally avoided in severe CHF. It is unclear whether this problem extends to all such agents; preliminary studies have suggested that amlodipine might be safe in CHF."
