What is Heart Failure?
02/01/2011
Heart failure means that the heart muscle is weak or cannot relax effectively and cannot pump as it should. This causes less blood to be moved through the heart and body. The heart is not able to pump enough blood (rich in oxygen and nutrients) to meet the body's needs. Often, the kidneys respond by causing your body to retain fluid and sodium.
