Dublin Virginia’s Leader in the Management of Congestive Heart Failure

At Pulaski Internal Medicine, we specialize in adult and senior care for COPD and heart failure. We have the experience to help our patients manage their chronic illnesses. One of the chronic conditions that we see most often is congestive heart failure (CHF). Congestive heart failure is normally caused by another chronic condition, such as diabetes or hypertension. Getting to the root of the issue and managing both conditions is where our staff excels.

What is Congestive Heart Failure?

Heart failure means that your hearts pumping power is weaker than normal and cannot adequately pump blood throughout the body. The reduction of blood flow can decrease oxygen and nutrient levels within the blood. This can cause the chambers in the heart to stretch and harden.
