MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT: Cualquier afección o enfermedad que daña la capacidad del corazón de bombear sangre puede producir insuficiencia cardíaca. Por ejemplo, la causa más común es la cardiopatía coronaria. En ésta, una sustancia grasosa, denominada placa, bloquea los vasos sanguíneos que alimentan el músculo cardíaco, denominados arterias coronarias. Otras causas frecuentes de insuficiencia cardíaca incluyen la hipertensión arterial no controlada y la glucemia elevada en la diabetes. Entre las causas menos frecuentes de insuficiencia cardíaca se incluyen válvulas cardíacas enfermas, infectadas o dañadas, latidos del corazón irregulares, denominados arritmias, defectos cardíacos, envenenamiento o abuso de sustancias, enfermedades pulmonares y problemas de respiración durante el sueño, denominados apnea del sueño.
