Heart Failure

Contrary to how it sounds, Heart Failure doesn’t mean the heart has "failed" or stopped working. It simply means the heart doesn’t pump as well as it should. Your body depends on the heart to deliver oxygen and nutrients through your blood to all the body's cells so your body can function normally. A weakened heart can’t pump efficiently to provide cells with enough blood.
