Heart failure (also known as congestive heart failure) happens when the heart becomes weak or stiff, thus losing its ability to pump enough blood. This causes a build-up of fluid in the tissues (an oedema), leaving the organs and tissues with insufficient oxygen and nutrients to function properly. With lifestyle modifications and medications, the heart can pump blood better.
