Hi Riri Fadillah,
The presence of fluid in the heart is actually not a buildup in the heart but in the pericardium cavity. The fluid that causes filling the cavity can be in the form of blood or other bodily fluids, this condition is medically also known as cardiac tamponade. Cardiac tamponade is usually caused by very strong pressure on the heart, besides that it can also be caused by the following conditions:
Infection Impaired renal function Malignancy Inflammation of the pericardial cavity Injury or injury to the heart tamponade is a dangerous condition that requires immediate medical attention. Handling is done aims to take fluid that has accumulated in the heart so that the heart can work optimally and overcome the causes of cardiac tamponade.
Food regulation on cardiac tamponade is adjusted to the medical conditions that accompany a person. If there is a history of kidney dysfunction, consumption of protein and fluids can be limited. If there is a disturbance in heart function such as heart swelling, the consumption of salt and fluids also needs to be limited. It is better for your father to consult directly with his caregivers about this in order to get information that is appropriate to his condition.
