If you are under a doctor's care for
heart failure, the following tips may help you deal
with fluid buildup that causes difficulty with breathing.
Note: If your symptoms are severe enough to require these
measures and you have not been diagnosed with heart failure, call your doctor first. Also, call your doctor if these are
new symptoms or if your symptoms have become worse than they were when you
last saw your doctor.
Don't smoke. Smoking will make it more difficult for you
