WHAT IS HEART FAILURE?

Heart failure is a common, progressive condition in which the heart?s pumping power weakens, slowing the flow of blood throughout the body. Heart failure doesn?t mean that the heart has stopped working but rather that it has become inefficient. The condition increases pressure inside the heart and lungs, which can result in a buildup of fluid in the feet, ankles, legs, and lungs.
