What is Chronic Heart Failure (HF)?

Chronic heart failure means that your heart isn't pumping correctly to supply enough blood for your body's needs. When areas of your body don't receive plenty of oxygen-rich blood, you might feel tired or weak, and unable to do some of the physical things you normally do.

Difference Between a Healthy Heart and a Heart with Chronic HF

Healthy Heart

  • The heart's left side pump sends oxygen-rich blood throughout the body.
  • The heart's right-side pump moves "used" blood to the lungs to get more oxygen.

HEART IN A PERSON WITH CHRONIC HEART FAILURE

  • Weak heart muscles might not have the strength to move blood as well as they should.

If it's not treated, chronic heart failure can worsen to the point that you may need to be hospitalized.
