Heart Failure occurs when your heart muscle doesn’t pump blood efficiently due to conditions as Coronary Artery disease, high blood pressure, etc.
Heart failure is a chronic, progressive condition in which the heart muscle is unable to pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs for blood and oxygen.
Basically, the heart can’t keep up with its workload.
Blood circulates through the heart and other parts of the body at a slower rate, and pressure on the heart increases. As a result, the heart becomes unable to pump enough oxygen and nutrients to meet the body’s requirements. Heart specialists sometimes can treat Heart Failure by focusing on the underlying reason. For example, treating a heart valve or controlling a fast heart rhythm may decrease Heart Failure symptoms. But for most patients, the treatment of Heart Failure includes a balance of the most effective medicines and, in some cases, the use of devices that make the heart function better.
