Heart Failure and Brain Health
A chronic, progressive condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body's needs for blood and oxygen is termed as Heart Failure.
The heart pumps 20% of blood to brain and brain receives oxygen through 20% blood. If heart failure happens, the blood supply or oxygen to the brain will be reduced and thereby memory loss happens.
According to the new study, heart failure is directly associated with loss of grey matter in the brain which is associated with memory, reasoning and planning. It has been proven that many heart failure patients had bad long time or immediate memory. If any damages occur in heart or blood vessels, the blood supply to brain will be collapsed.
