What is Congestive Heart Failure?
Congestive heart failure occurs when the heart muscle does not pump enough blood to meet the body’s needs. The failure can occur when the heart does not pump properly (systolic) or does not fill adequately (diastolic). Heart failure does not mean the heart is about to stop working completely, but it does mean that the heart is failing to keep sufficient blood flow.
