    Frequently asked questions

    To take the blood sample, a tourniquet (elastic) band is placed tightly on the upper arm. The patient is asked to make a fist. This helps in the buildup of blood filling the veins and it becomes easy to collect the blood. The skin is cleaned before inserting the needle in the vein in order to prevent bacteria from entering. The needle is then inserted into the vein in the arm and the blood sample is collected in the vacutainer.
    Heart failure is a condition in which the heart is not able to pump enough blood to meet the workload requirements.
    The signs and symptoms of heart failure include shortness of breath, persistent cough or wheezing, and build-up of excess fluid in the body.
    The most common cause of heart disease is atherosclerosis. Atherosclerosis occurs when there is a build-up of fat on the walls of the arteries that restricts the blood flow.
    The risk factors of heart disease include high blood pressure, high levels of cholesterol, obesity, diabetes, use of tobacco, excessive use of alcohol, and not doing physical activity.
