What Is Heart Failure?

Heart failure, also called congestive heart failure, is a condition in which the heart can't pump enough oxygenated blood to meet the needs of the body's organs. The heart keeps pumping, but not efficiently. Heart failure affects nearly five million adults in the United States.

Heart failure is a serious condition and can be a difficult diagnosis for patients to receive. The progressive disease usually requires a team of medical professionals to manage the range of symptoms that disrupt a patient's life. While many of the conditions that lead to heart failure cannot be reversed, often congestive heart failure can be treated with good results.
