WHAT IS HEART FAILURE?

Heart failure is a serious medical condition where the heart does not pump blood around the body as well as it should. This means that your blood can't deliver enough oxygen and nourishment to your body to allow it to work normally. This, for example, may cause you to feel tired or fatigued. It also means that you can't eliminate waste products properly - leading to a build up of fluid in your lungs and other parts of your body, such as your legs and abdomen.
