The heart of a human can – and sometimes does – just stop. It can be a chronic condition that worsens over time; or an acute event that suddenly, catastrophically, just happens.
Its potential causes are legion. Some we can take precautions against – some strike out of the blue.
When heart failure happens, it is possible to recover. But recovery is certainly not guaranteed, and it is not easy; nor is there any certainty recovery can be complete.
At this point, most are probably thinking about taking care of the muscle in our chest. The one that starts beating before we are born, and when it stops for good, we move on from this life. And, yes, everything shared thus far applies to that.
But there is another kind of heart failure. And the hard numbers are frightening. As this type of heart failure is becoming more prevalent in our world. It is clear, even without consulting research, any casual observer can see it.
