Heart Failure Patients Given Smoking
Smoking increases your risk for
developing blood clots and heart
disease, which can result in a heart
attack, heart failure or stroke.
Smoking causes your blood vessels to
thicken. Fat and plaque then stick
to the wall of your blood vessels, which
makes it harder for blood to flow.
Reduced blood flow to your heart may
result in chest pain, high blood
pressure, and an increased heart rate.
smoking is linked to lung disease and
cancer, and can cause premature death.
It is important for your health that you
get information to help you quit smoking
before you leave the hospital.
