Congenital Heart Failure?

Nurses General Nursing


I have to write a paper on this subject and I am confused about the information that I am finding. Are congestive and congenital the same thing? and what about congenital heart disease, how does that get involved. If someone could help I would appreciate it thanks

Congenital means it is a conditon you were born with. It is not the same as congestive. Congestive heart desease is heart failure that leads to congestion.
