    Heart Failure

    Also called: CHF, Cardiac failure, Congestive heart failure, Left-sided heart failure, Right-sided heart failure

    Heart failure is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough blood to meet the body's needs. Heart failure does not mean that your heart has stopped or is about to stop working. It means that your heart is not able to pump blood the way it should. It can affect one or both sides of the heart.

    The weakening of the heart's pumping ability causes

    • Blood and fluid to back up into the lungs
    • The buildup of fluid in the feet, ankles and legs - called edema
    • Tiredness and shortness of breath

    Common causes of heart failure are coronary artery disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. It is more common in people who are 65 years old or older, African Americans, people who are overweight, and people who have had a heart attack. Men have a higher rate of heart failure than women.

    Your doctor will diagnose heart failure by doing a physical exam and heart tests. Treatment includes treating the underlying cause of your heart failure, medicines, and heart transplantation if other treatments fail.

    Streptococcal Infections

    Also called: Strep

    Strep is short for Streptococcus, a type of bacteria. There are two types: group A and group B.

    Group A strep causes

    • Strep throat - a sore, red throat, sometimes with white spots on the tonsils
    • Scarlet fever - an illness that follows strep throat. It causes a red rash on the body.
    • Impetigo - a skin infection
    • Toxic shock syndrome
    • Cellulitis and necrotizing fasciitis (flesh-eating disease)

    Group B strep can cause blood infections, pneumonia and meningitis in newborns. A screening test during pregnancy can tell if you have it. If you do, I.V. antibiotics during labor can save your baby's life. Adults can also get group B strep infections, especially if they are elderly or already have health problems. Strep B can cause urinary tract infections, blood infections, skin infections and pneumonia in adults.

    Antibiotics are used to treat strep infections.
