Regular checkups are advantageous for you and your primary care physician monitor your conditions and be involved in coordinated care. Health screenings are used to identify risk factors that can help prevent serious illness or lessen the severity of the illness through early detection methods. For example, your provider taking pressure measurements helps prevent cardiac illness or can help control the severity of hypertension in patients. Check-ups are a good way to stay connected to your physician. Even if you are not experiencing a change in the way you feel, it is always a good idea to connect with your physician and discuss any current medications you are taking or what is working and what is not working. Coordinating treatment is an important part of primary care as well, you want one physician controlling medical tests, procedures, and hospitalizations. This helps limit redundancy and gives each specialist and physician a clearer path to accurate treatment. Patient education is also very important because it helps the patient understand health measurements such as cardiac pressure, weight, and cholesterol. This will help you better control your health on your own and make healthy lifestyle choices.

How can a primary doctor help manage my congestive heart failure?

When the cardiac muscle is too weak to pump blood adequately. The cardiac ventricles fill up with blood faster than it can pump the blood back out, and the ventricles become “congested” with too much. This means oxygen is not being delivered throughout the body fast enough. Over a long time less blood circulates, the extra effort that heart must take causes palpitations, the heart begins to enlarge to make more room for the extra blood, the lungs fill with fluid, and it becomes hard to breath. The kidneys will begin to retain water and salt which could lead to kidney failure as well. The best way to manage CHF is to prevent it.

  • Stop smoking or don’t start smoking
  • Eat heart healthy foods such as fruits, vegetable, lean protein, and “good fats”
  • Lose weight if you are overweight
  • Follow any other treatment programs for other cardiac illness and problems
