Heart Failure

Heart Failure

Heart Failure is a condition that occurs when the heart does not pump enough oxygen, nutrition, and blood flow to the body's vital organs. The weakened heart cannot pump blood efficiently. This may lead to a back-up of fluid into the lungs, legs or abdomen. The weakening of the heart muscle (cardiomyopathy) can cause heart failure to develop. With early diagnosis and treatment, heart failure can be prevented or slowed.
