Causes Of Vomiting In Patients With Weak Heart?
If you have a weak heart disease, why do you keep vomiting, why is that?
Hi Aghung.. Thank you for the question given.
Weak heart in medical language can be said as heart failure. Heart failure is a condition in which the heart cannot pump blood optimally so that the body's oxygen needs are not met. Causes of heart failure can be due to: coronary heart disease, heart rhythm disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart muscle disorders. Symptoms that can appear in patients with heart failure are:
shortness of breath, especially when lying down and usually the patient will be more comfortable when sitting or lying down with 2 pillows
fatigue, easy dizziness due to lack of oxygen intake to the body
swelling in the legs and abdomen due to fluid buildup
As a result of the accumulation of fluid earlier, it can lead to a buildup of fluid in the abdomen or called ascites. Accumulation of fluid in ascites occurs between the abdominal wall and the organs in the abdomen. So the patient will feel nausea, vomiting, tightness, enlarged stomach and bloating, chest feels hot. So that one of the causes of vomiting in patients with heart failure is due to ascites.
Other causes of vomiting include:
Rising stomach acid
Infections of the urinary tract or intestines
If your father's complaints do not improve, vomiting continuously and causing your father to lose weight and become weak, then consult a doctor. The doctor will perform a physical examination directly so that appropriate treatment can be carried out. Meanwhile do: eat in small amounts but with frequent frequency, meet daily water needs, avoid psychological stress, avoid activities that are too heavy.
