I want to ask why there are people who have heart failure in their pigmentation

1 Answer:

Hello Bro, Thank you Valentino for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.


Heart failure is a condition where the heart cannot pump blood supply effectively. The cause is an abnormality in the heart muscle that ultimately cannot pump like a normal heart condition in general.


Basically what happens is not pigmentation, but blocked blood vessels that should get adequate supply of oxygen and nutrients. When the heart is not working optimally, the oxygen in the lungs also cannot be properly distributed by the blood, because the power to drain blood is quite weak. This causes small blood vessels, especially in the lower body, will be more difficult to obtain oxygen supply, especially blood from the bottom is difficult to return to the top because of less pressure from the heart. This is why there appears to be a change in skin that is like bluish red in someone with heart failure. Generally it will start in the lower limbs.


If this happens continuously, it is not impossible that tissue that does not get oxygen will experience tissue death. Moreover, in patients with heart failure accompanied by the possibility of cholesterol embolism that will make the skin look like a net pattern. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful. thanks.
